When many virtual machines perform boot operations at the same time, you might see errors during array-based and vSphere Replication recovery.


  1. On the recovery server, go to C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager\config.
  2. Open the vmware-dr.xml file in a text editor.
  3. Update the defaultMaxBootAndShutdownOpsPerCluster and defaultMaxBootAndShutdownOpsPerHost values to limit the number of power-on operations at the recovery site.

    The following example shows how to limit the number of power-on operations to a maximum of 32 per cluster and 4 per standalone host.

  4. Restart the Site Recovery Manager Server service.
