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
Region A sfo02m01esx01.sfo01.rainpole.local
Region B lax01m01esx01.lax01.rainpole.local


  1. 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
  2. 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 --network
    Recovery region in Availability Zone 1 lax01m01esx01
    esxcli network ip route ipv4 add --gateway --network
  3. Verify the routing table by running the command.
    esxcli network ip route ipv4 list
  4. Repeat this procedure for the lax01m01esx01 host in Region B.
