The workflow runs a test recovery on the local site for a virtual machine with a configured forward replication to a cloud site.

About this task

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

Procedure
