Using the VMware HCX Disaster Recovery's Virtual Machine recovery operation, you can activate the Virtual Machine replica at the HCX destination site.


This procedure applies when a protected virtual machine has become unavailable due to a disaster event. This unavailable state is indicated with a red lightning bolt status in the Services - Disaster Recovery interface.


  1. Open the VMware HCX Cloud interface at the destination site.
  2. Navigate to Services > Disaster Recovery.
  3. Click Actions and click Recover.

    The recovery process starts. After the recovery completes, the Virtual Machine is visible in the VMware HCX Disaster Recovery destination site's vSphere Inventory.
