Each vRealize Automation deployment can only provision blueprints in its region. You can set up a dual-region environment using a DLR or a UDLR.

If you want to deploy workloads to Region B using a DLR, you follow these steps:

  1. Prepare for the deployment. See Preparing for Region A Scenario Deployment.

  2. Perform all tasks in Region B Virtual Infrastructure Implementation in the Deployment for Region B document of the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center.

  3. Perform all tasks in Region B Cloud Management Platform Implementation in the Deployment for Region B document of the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center.

  4. According to your scenario, you might have to perform some tasks in Region B Operations Implementation in the Deployment for Region B document of the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center. For example, some scenarios use vRealize Log Insight.

  5. Follow the instructions in this section, Preparing for Region B Deployment.

VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center documentation is available on the VMware Validated Design Documentation page.

Note:

This set of scenario preparation procedures uses a DLR that is associated with the NSX Manager in Region B. Virtual machines that are created from one of the blueprints cannot migrate to region A. See Scenarios Solution Paths about the advantages and disadvantages of using a DLR or a UDLR.
