The IP address map reporter generates an XML document describing the IP properties of protected virtual machines and their placeholders, grouped by site and recovery plan. This information can help you understand the network requirements of a recovery plan.

About this task

Because the IP address mapping reporter must connect to both sites, you can run the command at either site. You are prompted to supply the vCenter login credentials for each site when the command runs.

Procedure

  1. Open a command shell on the Site Recovery Manager Server host at either the protected or recovery site.
  2. Change to the C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager\bin directory.
  3. Run the dr-ip-reporter.exe command, as shown in this example.
    dr-ip-reporter.exe 
    --cfg ..\config\vmware-dr.xml 
    --out path_to_report_file.xml
    --vc vcenter_server_address

    To restrict the list of networks to just the ones required by a specific recovery plan, include the -plan option on the command line, as shown in this example.

    dr-ip-reporter.exe 
    --cfg ..\config\vmware-dr.xml 
    --out path_to_report_file.xml 
    --vc vcenter_server_address
    --plan recovery_plan_name
    
    Note:

    The command normally asks you to verify the thumbprints presented by the certificates at each site. You can suppress the verification request by including the -I option.
