Configure the replication traffic between the Availability Zone 2 and the recovery region by adding static routes between the management ESXi hosts.
You repeat this procedure for two management ESXi hosts in both regions. The configuration is later distributed by using the host profiles in each region.
|Region||Host||Source Gateway||Target network|
- Log in to the sfo02m01esx01 ESXi host by using a Secure Shell (SSH) client.
Setting Value FQDN sfo02m01esx01.sfo01.rainpole.local User name root Password esxi_root_user_password
- To create a route to the corresponding region, run the following command.
Availability Zone Host Command Availability Zone 2 sfo02m01esx01
esxcli network ip route ipv4 add --gateway 172.16.26.253 --network 172.17.16.0/24
Recovery region in Availability Zone 1 lax01m01esx01
esxcli network ip route ipv4 add --gateway 172.17.16.253 --network 172.16.26.0/24
- Verify the routing table by running the command.
esxcli network ip route ipv4 list
- Repeat this procedure for the lax01m01esx01 host in Region B.
