Have you purchased SRM?

or are you just experimenting with it?

It's normally performed by VMware and Storage Partners, because the SAN to SAN replication is key, to get working correctly!

one major gotcha with SRM - lack of support for datastore clusters... :(  What storage vendor do you utilise, I often find the best guides / articles are from the storage vendors info - .e.g EMC have some good guides.
