After configuring vSphere Replication, you can move replications to other vSphere Replication Server instances. You might do this to complete maintenance tasks on existing servers or to balance the load on the servers if one server becomes overloaded with replications.

Prerequisites

You must have an additional vSphere Replication Server deployed and registered, apart from the embedded vSphere Replication Server.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the vSphere Client or vSphere Web Client on the source site.
  2. On the home page, click Site Recovery and click Open Site Recovery.
  3. On the Site Recovery home page, select a site pair and click View Details.
  4. Click the Replications tab and select a replication from Outgoing or Incoming.
  5. Click the Reconfigure icon.
  6. On the Target site page of the Reconfigure Replication wizard, select Manually select vSphere Replication Server.
  7. Select a different vSphere Replication Server instance from the list and click Next until you finish the wizard.

Results

The newly assigned server is updated in the Replication Server column.
