You can cancel a recovery plan test at any time during its run. You can cancel a planned migration or disaster recovery at certain times during its run.

About this task

When you cancel a test or recovery, Site Recovery Manager does not start steps, and uses certain rules to stop steps that are in progress.

  • Steps that cannot be stopped, such as powering on or waiting for a heartbeat, run to completion before the cancellation finishes.

  • Steps that add or remove storage devices are undone by cleanup operations if you cancel.

The time it takes to cancel a test or recovery depends on the type and number of steps that are currently in progress.


To cancel a test or recovery, click Cancel on the recovery plan toolbar.
