To control the replication settings of vCloud Director organizations, you assign a replication policy to the organizations.

If you do not assign a custom policy to an organization, the default replication policy is assigned to the organization.


  1. Log in to the vCloud Availability Portal by using System administrator credentials.
  2. In the left pane, click Policies.
  3. On the Policies page, select a replication policy and click Assign.
  4. In the Assign Policy window, to assign the policy to one or more organizations select them, and click Assign.


You assigned the policy to the selected vCloud Director organizations.

If there are conflicts between the assigned replication policy and the existing replications, you must first resolve the conflicts. For more information, see Replication Policy Conflicts.
