Can anyone help me? thanks!
you can check the documentation for SRM Upgrade - Order of Upgrading vSphere and Site Recovery Manager Components (Order of Upgrading vSphere and Site Recovery Manager Components )
Hope that this help,
I used the VMware documentation to write up my plan, but I just made a small change, for each site I will do vSphere appliance 1st, then SRM.
But my question is this: when you reboot, or shutdown vCenter for 10min, does it impact Protection Group and recovery plan? do you have to re-configure anything when it come back again? for example if you only reboot Protected site on Sat evening, when that vCenter come back, everything will be OK? ( assume vSphere replication appliance will not be touched during Sat maintenance window)
Having VC down for 10 mins (or 2 hours) will not impact your PGs or RPs. You won't need to reconfigure anything (assuming nothing changes with your VC inventory - no VMs removed, moved, etc)
The protected site VC being down doesn't impact your ability to recover either. You could still run a recovery plan in DR mode without issue. When your VC was back you would run it again, then reprotect.
thanks, that is what I suspect.
I am always very happy with the attitude from regular VMware employee, as for the company, I must say it is horrendous.
