The workflow runs a test recovery on the local site for a virtual machine with configured incoming replication from the target cloud site.

The recovery is tested on the local site. You must select a virtual machine with configured incoming replication from the target cloud site. Verify that any previous test recovery results are cleaned before running the workflow. After the workflow finishes, the virtual machine test status is changed and must be cleaned up to run planned migration or real recovery.
