Configure and perform a failback of the management applications in the SDDC from the protected region, Region B, to the recovery region, Region A. Failing back these applications restores the pre-recovery configuration of the SDDC.

You fail back the following management components:

  • vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager

  • Analytics cluster of vRealize Operations Manager

    • The remote collector nodes of vRealize Operations Manager do not fail back. Deploy a separate pair of remote collectors in each region in the application virtual network that is dedicated to the region.

  • Primary components of vRealize Automation with embedded vReaize Orchestrator and vRealize Business

    • The vSphere Proxy Agents of vRealize Automation and the vRealize Business data collector do not fail back. Deploy a separate pair of agents and collector in each region in an application isolated network.
