You can disable the recovery of a consistency group in a storage policy protection group without removing it from the protection group.

About this task

If a consistency group is causing errors when you run a recovery plan of an SPPG, you can disable the recovery of the consistency group. You must repeat the procedure for each individual consistency group.

Prerequisites

To use the Disable Recovery functionality, the storage policy protection group must be in partially recovered state, and one of the following conditions must be met:

  • The consistency group does not appear on the recovery site.

  • The consistency group appears on the recovery site but is empty.

  • The consistency group appears on the recovery site but all virtual machines in the group have errors.

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Web Client, click Site Recovery > Protection Groups.
  2. Select a storage policy protection group and on the Related Objects tab, click Consistency Groups.
  3. Select a consistency group and click the Disable Recovery button.
  4. Click Yes to confirm.

Results

Next time you run the recovery plan, the consistency group is skipped for recovery.

What to do next

Run the recovery plan again. See Run a Recovery Plan.
