I want to understand:

In the scenario , where Replication of VMs from one site to another site is done, what are the steps I need to take before the complete Cut over or partial cut over

I mean all VMs are replicated or few of them are replicated and I want the Target VMs to be powered ON if they are fully replicated.


Thank you

I think you are talking about Failover/disaster recovery. That is possible only when VRA is working along with SRM.
As far as vSphere Replication is concerned you can recover successfully replicated virtual machines at the secondary site, one at a time.

Its not like all the machines will failover and you can take the primary site down and perform a cutover. This is to my knowledge.

I mean we are planning to move VMs from one site to another. both sites are production, but at certain point in time we need to close one site( the replicating), without interrupting production

I guess this can be doable using VRA on each site….However what are the steps to take, to make sure the production is not interrupted on the Source and target sites:

for instance, if VM1 is replicated from site A to Site B, and it still synching any new changes, then how can I power it off from site A without loosing the data that is being written to it ?
