A vApp replication state depends on the state of the VMs it contains. You can perform specific actions on replications depending on their state.

Data Connection States

When a replication is configured, the data connection state defines the status of the replication.

Table 1. Data Connection States

Data Connection State

Healthy

The source can send data and the destination is receiving the data successfully. A successfully recovered replication is considered as healthy.

Error

There is a problem on the destination site. For example, the target datastore is full. You must manually troubleshoot the destination site.

Paused

The replication is paused. No data is transferred. Recovery Point Objective (RPO) violations are expected. You see a yellow color-coded state.

Powered Off

The source VM is powered off. Data transfer starts after you turn on the source VM or you synchronize the replication manually.

Synchronizing

Synchronization between source and destination sites is in progress.

Pruning

Destination instances are being pruned.

Unknown

The source and destination states are unknown. There is a problem in both sites that you must manually troubleshoot.

Recovery States

When you start a recovery operation, you can monitor the recovery status of the replication.

Recovery State

Description

Not started

Recovery operation is not started for the replication.

Complete

Recovery operation is complete. All instances are destroyed.

Test Image Ready

A Test Failover operation completed successfully.

Recovering

Recovery is in progress.

Reversed

The replication has been reversed.

Unknown

The recovery status is unknown.

Replication Overall Health States

The Overall Health displays a color-coded overall replication health status.

Overall Health State

Description

Green

There are no problems with the replication.

Yellow

There is a potential problem with the replication.

Red

The replication is in bad health. You must manually troubleshoot the problem.
