Configure the replication of the virtual machines that participate in the analytics cluster of the vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Lifecycle Manager to support failover to Region B. Replica virtual machines become active upon failover. You create a protection group and recovery plan along with the replication.

Procedure

  1. In a Web browser, log in to vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client.
    Setting Value
    URL https://sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local/ui
    User name administrator@vsphere.local
    Password vsphere_admin_password
  2. In the Site Recovery inventory, on the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local site pane, click Open Site Recovery.
    The Site Recovery page opens.
  3. Log in to the VMware Site Recovery Manager user interface by using the following credentials.
    Setting Value
    User name administrator@vsphere.local
    Password vsphere_admin_password
    Note: Authentication is required if the connection between the protected and the recovery sites has been interrupted after the last successful authentication.
  4. On the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local to lax01m01vc01.lax01.rainpole.local site pair pane, click View details.
  5. On the main navigation bar, click the Replications tab and, in the left pane, select Outgoing.
  6. On the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local to lax01m01vc01.lax01.rainpole.local pair, click New.
    The Configure replication wizard opens.
  7. In the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local - lax01m01vc01.lax01.rainpole.local pair, click New.
    The Configure replication wizard opens.
  8. On the Virtual machines page, select the following virtual machines and click Next.
    Virtual Machine Name Role
    vrops01svr01a Master node
    vrops01svr01b Master replica node
    vrops01svr01c Data node 1
    vrslcm01svr01 Realize Suite Lifecycle Manager
  9. On the Target site page, select Auto-assign vSphere Replication server and click Next.
  10. On the Target datastore page, configure the settings and click Next.
    Setting Value
    Disk format Thin provision
    VM storage policy vSAN Default Storage Policy
    Datastore lax01-m01-vsan01
  11. On the Replication settings page, enter the following settings and click Next.

    Setting

    Value

    Recovery Point Objective (RPO) 15 minutes
    Enable point in time instances Selected
    Keep 3 instances per day for the last 1 days.
    Enable Guest OS quiescing Deselected
    Enable network compression for VR data Selected
    Important: Do not enable guest OS quiescing because some of the vRealize Operations Manager databases do not support quiescing. Quiescing might result in a cluster failure because virtual disks remain in a frozen state for too long. 

    Compression requires extra resources. Do not enable it if the hosts are over-utilized.

  12. On the Protection group page, select Add to new protection group, enter SDDC Operations Management PG for the protection group name, and click Next.
  13. On the Recovery plan page, select Add to new recovery plan, enter SDDC Operations Management RP for recovery plan name, and click Next.
  14. On the Ready to complete page, review the configuration and click Finish.
