vSphere Replication Manager - VM migration
Posted on 2016-11-06
We are running vCenter 5.1 on Site-1. We've also built a new vCenter 5.1 in a different geographical location (Site-2) with new ESXi servers. Our primary target is to discontinue Site-1 and move all existing VMs in Site-2. We don't want Storage Replication and SRM to do this.
As vSphere Replication Manager replicates VMs over the IP, we want vSphere Replication Manager Appliance 5.x to replicate VMs from source (Site-1) to target (Site-2) and then stop replication once all VMs appear in target location (Site-2). We will then decommission Site-1 vCenter.
Can this be possible? If we stop replication and decommission the primary site will there be any problem with VMs replicated to Site-2?
