You can include virtual machines that you configured for a Virtual Volumes replication in Virtual Volumes protection groups.
When using Virtual Volumes protection groups, Site Recovery Manager checks both the recovery and the protection site and matches the Virtual Volumes configurations that can be used. That includes paired fault domains, direction of replication, and so on. To use Virtual Volumes protection groups, you must have a registered Virtual Volumes datastore at both the protected and the recovery site.
There are certain limitations to Virtual Volumes protection groups.
- Site Recovery Manager does not support protection of virtual machines that have non-replicated virtual disks with Virtual Volumes protection groups.
- Site Recovery Manager does not support the protection of virtual machines with different vVols-based disks, replicated by different storage policies or different Virtual Volumes replication groups.
- Virtual Volumes does not support the recovery of template virtual machines.
