To perform disaster recovery tasks to and from a cloud site, you establish a connection between the local and remote organization and authenticate as an Organization Administrator.

You can also defer authentication until access to that cloud is needed. For more information about disaster recovery operations that require you to authenticate to remote sites, see the vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR Services Requirements topic in Installing and Configuring vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR.


  • Pair your cloud sites. For more information about pairing cloud sites, see vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR Installation and Configuration Guide.

  • To perform replication operations on the remote site, verify that your user is assigned with Organization Administrator privileges for the local and remote organizations.


  1. Log in to the vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR portal as an organization administrator.
  2. Click Cloud Sites and locate the cloud site that you authenticate to in the Cloud sites list.
  3. Click the Login for the site you authenticate to.

    The Log In window displays.

  4. Enter the remote cloud site Organization Administrator user name and password, and click Login.
