The vRealize Orchestrator plug-in for vSphere Replication extends automation capabilities for certain vSphere Replication operations.

The vSphere Replication plug-in includes vRealize Orchestrator actions, workflows, and scripting objects to expose selected elements of the vSphere Replication API to workflows. With the plug-in you can automate the configuration of replication for virtual machines, run migrations and real recoveries, manage local and remote site, and synchronize virtual machine data.

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to configure and manage replications:

  • Configure a forward replication for virtual machines to a target vCenter Server or cloud site.

  • Configure a reverse replication for virtual machines from a target vCenter Server or cloud site.

  • Pause, resume, or stop a forward replication for virtual machines to a target vCenter Server or cloud site.

  • Pause, resume, or stop a reverse replication for virtual machines from a target vCenter Server or cloud site.

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to run recovery:

  • Run a planned migration to or from a target cloud site.

  • Run a real recovery to or from a target cloud site.

  • Run a test clean to and from a target cloud site.

  • Run a test recovery to and from a target cloud site.

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to manage remote sites:

  • Pair the local site with a target vCenter Server or cloud site.

  • Register a standalone organization, cloud, or vCenter Server site.

  • Unregister standalone organization, cloud, or vCenter Server site.

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to synchronize virtual machine data:

  • Full synchronization to a target vCenter Server or cloud site.

  • Offline synchronization to or from a target cloud site.

  • Offline synchronization to a target vCenter Server site.

  • Synchronize a replication to or from a target cloud site.

  • Synchronize a replication to a target vCenter Server site.
