The workflow adds site-wide mappings of datacenters or virtual machine folders on the local site to datacenters or virtual machine folders on the remote site.

The workflow requires that the Site Recovery Manager sites are paired. If pairing is broken, all existing mappings are deleted and no additional mappings can be added. You can map multiple parent (datacenter) and child (virtual machine folder) objects to a single object. A single object can have only one mapping. You can run the workflow multiple times for a single object, the latest workflow run sets the site-wide mapping. You can map a datacenter to a virtual machine folder and a virtual machine folder to a datacenter.
