The workflow initiates a cancel of failover or test of recovery plan.

When you cancel a test or recovery, Site Recovery Manager does not start processes, and uses certain rules to stop processes that are in progress. Canceling a failover requires you to re-run the failover. Canceling a test requires you to run a cleanup.

  • Processes that cannot be stopped, such as powering on or waiting for a heartbeat, run to completion before the cancellation finishes.

  • Processes that add or remove storage devices are undone by cleanup operations if you cancel.

The workflow performs a check for the recovery plan state when running. You can cancel a recovery or a test if the recovery plan is in state running.

Recovery plans are created with a specified direction of protection between the paired sites. You can run Initiate Cancel Recovery Plan workflow to cancel recovery or test on the recovery (receiving) site.
