In the event of a site failure in Region A, dynamic routing in Region B might not be available. Deploy a Control VM for the universal distributed logical router sfo01m01udlr01 in Region B to recover dynamic routing in the environment. You then configure the recovered Control VM to provide dynamic routing for the SDDC management applications that are failed over.
