Anti-affinity rules do not persist across regions during recovery using Site Recovery Manager. In Region B, you must create the anti-affinity rules for the components of the Cloud Management Platform that are failed over from Region A so that the rules apply after failover.

You configure the following anti-affinity rules for the vRealize Automation virtual machines.
