In this example, you create a vSphere Replication user who can perform recovery operations only if the source site is not available.


  • Verify that you have two sites connected and replication configured between them.
  • Verify that you have another user account for the target site.


  1. Log in as the Administrator user on the target site.
  2. Select vCenter > Manage > Permissions and assign to this user the VRM virtual machine recovery user role with the propagate option.
  3. Log in as that user on the target site.
  4. Select Monitor > vSphere Replication > Incoming Replications, select the replication, and start recovery.
  5. Select Recover with latest available data and follow the prompts to finish the recovery.
