The workflow starts a planned migration failover from the protected to the recovery site through the selected recovery plan.

When completing a planned migration failover, Site Recovery Manager migrates virtual machines to the recovery site and attempts to shut down corresponding virtual machines on the protected site.

If errors occur on the protected site, the planned migration operation stops so that you can resolve the errors and rerun the plan.
