Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Web Client, click Site Recovery > Sites, and select a site.
  2. On the Manage tab, click Advanced Settings.
  3. Click Replication.

    Option

    Action

    Skip the check for non-protected replica virtual machines while deactivating the protection site during Planned Migration. The default value is false.

    Select the checkbox to enable the value replication.disablePiggybackVmsCheckDuringDeactivate.

    Change the timeout in seconds to wait when creating a placeholder virtual machine. The default value is 300 seconds.

    Enter a new value in the replication.placeholderVmCreationTimeout text box.

    Periodically poll the virtual machines in storage policy protection groups for missing mappings and report a warning if any mappings are missing that can cause the storage policy protection group recovery to fail. The default value is false.

    Select the checkbox to change the value replication.pollForMissingInventoryMappings to true.

    Change the timeout in seconds to wait for consistency group information to be replicated to the remote site before starting an online sync on that site. The default is 900 seconds.

    Enter a new value in the replication.protectionInfoSyncTimeout textbox.

    Change the interval in seconds to poll the storage policy protection groups and missing inventory mappings. The default value is 120 seconds.

    Enter a new value in the replication.protectionPollInterval textbox.

    Note:

    Before you update the polling interval, estimate the changes in your environment, their frequency and the performance of the environment.
