In cloud sites backed by
VMware Cloud Director, perform maintenance operations on a datastore, or on a Replicator Service instance, or rebalance replications across Replicator Service instances, or replace a Cloud Tunnel Appliance.
Evacuate the Replication Data from a Datastore For performing maintenance operations on a local datastore in the cloud site evacuate all incoming replications and replication data placed on that datastore. To evacuate the replications from the datastore at once, apply an alternative storage policy for all incoming replications that reside on the datastore.
Replicator Service Maintenance Mode To prepare a Replicator Service instance for maintenance without disrupting replications, you can evacuate the incoming replications from the Replicator Service instance to other local Replicator Service instances in the cloud site.
Rebalance Replications To distribute the incoming replications evenly over all Replicator Service instances in the site, you can rebalance the replications.
Replace a Cloud Tunnel Appliance To replace or restore a failing Cloud Tunnel Appliance, power it off, deploy a new instance of the appliance and enable tunneling to the new appliance.
