The vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for vCenter Site Recovery Manager allows you to automate certain Site Recovery Manager operations by including them in vCenter Orchestrator workflows.

The vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for vCenter Site Recovery Manager includes actions and workflows that run Site Recovery Manager operations. If you are a vCenter Orchestrator administrator, you can create workflows that include the actions and workflows from the Site Recovery Manager plug-in. By including Site Recovery Manager actions and workflows in vCenter Orchestrator workflows, you can combine Site Recovery Manager operations with the automated operations that other vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins provide.

For example, you can create a workflow that uses the actions and workflows of the vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for vCenter Server to create and configure virtual machines and register them with vCenter Server. In the same workflow, you can use the actions and workflows from the Site Recovery Manager plug-in to create protection groups and protect the virtual machines as soon as they are created. You can also use Site Recovery Manager actions and workflows to configure some of the recovery settings for the protected virtual machines. Combining the vCenter Server and Site Recovery Manager actions and workflows in a vCenter Orchestrator workflow thus allows you to automate the process of creating and protecting virtual machines.

You can use the vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for vCenter Site Recovery Manager in a shared recovery site configuration, in which you connect multiple Site Recovery Manager instances to a single vCenter Server instance. You can also use the vCenter Orchestrator plug-in for vCenter Site Recovery Manager with multiple Site Recovery Manager instances on multiple vCenter Server instances that are connected to the same vCenter Single Sign-On server.
