The workflow adds site-wide mappings of data centers or virtual machine folders on the local site to data centers or virtual machine folders on the remote site.

You can map multiple parent (data center) and child (virtual machine folder) objects to a single object. A single object can have only one mapping. You can run the workflow multiple times for a single object, the latest workflow run sets the site-wide mapping. You can map a data center to a virtual machine folder and a virtual machine folder to a data center.


Verify that the Site Recovery Manager sites are paired. If the pairing is broken, all existing mappings are deleted and no additional mappings can be added.
