I have deployed OVF (for Vmware Replication Appliance), I noticed that VRA automatically created 2 hard drives. I wonder what are those drives used for.

I thought configuration of VRA as well as the replication changes are stored in SQL database (in the same SQL instance that vCenter uses) and the replicated VM files are stored in the datastore selected through Replication Wizard.

so what are the 2 created drives are used for?

Thanks

Most appliances that VMware create are split into a

System OS disk.
Data disk.

AFAIK, The other disk will have the embedded database in it and all the data related to replication.
