You can adjust global settings to change how Site Recovery Manager interacts with vSphere Replication.

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Client or the vSphere Web Client, click Site Recovery > Open Site Recovery.
  2. On the Site Recovery home tab, select a site pair, and click View Details.
  3. In the left pane, click Configure > Advanced Settings > vSphere Replication.
  4. Select a site, and click Edit to modify the vSphere Replication settings.
    Option Description
    Allow Site Recovery Manager to recover virtual machines that are managed by other solutions. The default value is false. vSphere Replication allows solutions to manage the replication of virtual machines. By default, Site Recovery Manager only recovers the virtual machines that it manages. To allow Site Recovery Manager to recover virtual machines whose replications are managed by other solutions, move the slider of vrReplication.allowOtherSolutionTagInRecovery to true.
    Keep older multiple point in time (PIT) snapshots during recovery. The default value is true. If you configure vSphere Replication to take PIT snapshots of protected virtual machines, Site Recovery Manager only recovers the most recent snapshot when you perform a recovery. To recover older PIT snapshots during recovery, use the slider to set the value of vrReplication.preserveMpitImagesAsSnapshots to true.
    Change the timeout period for reverse replication during reprotect operations Type a new value in the vrReplication.reverseReplicationTimeout text box. The value that you enter must be half of the timeout time that you want to set. The default value is 7200 and corresponds to a working synchronization timeout period of 14400 seconds. Change this value if you experience timeout errors when vSphere Replication reverses replication during reprotect operations.
    Change the timeout period for vSphere Replication synchronization operations. The default value is 7200. Enter a new value in the vrReplication.synchronizationTimeout text box. The value that you enter must be half of the timeout time that you want to set. The default value is 7200 and corresponds to a working synchronization timeout period of 14400 seconds. Change this value if you experience timeout errors when vSphere Replication synchronizes virtual machines on the recovery site.
