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

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


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.


  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. Select the Protection Groups tab, click a storage policy protection group, and select the Consistency Groups tab.
  4. Select a consistency group and click the Disable Recovery button.
  5. Click Yes to confirm.


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.
