Use the VMware Cloud on AWS console Troubleshooting tab tests to check that all required network connectivity from your VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC to the remote site is in place.

You can use the tests both during the initial setup of VMware Site Recovery, and to troubleshoot connectivity issues during a day-to-day management. In addition to network connectivity, the DNS must also be operating properly. Use fully qualified domain names (FQDN) to test the DNS as well.


Verify that VMware Site Recovery is activated.

  2. Click View Details for your SDDC.
  3. Click the Troubleshooting tab.
  4. From the Use Case drop down menu, select Site Recovery.
    The VMware Site Recovery tests are shown. Tests are organized in groups according to the input needed for each group.
  5. In the Input column, enter the required input for each test you want to run.
