Does SRM work with vCenter Foundation?

Jump to solution

I guess i'm just going to repeat the subject for this question. πŸ˜ƒ

Does Site Recovery Manager work with vCenter Foundation at the two sites, or does it require full blown vCenter?

Thanks!!!

Even if SRM does work with vCenter Foundation, it is not supported:

SRM 4.0 and 4.0.1 are compatible with:

VMware vSphere 4 Standard, Advanced, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus editions

VMware Infrastructure 3 Enterprise, Foundation, and Standard editions

The compatibility matrix does say anything about vCenter 4.0 Fountation or Standard, so it didnt answer my question. I still dont know if I can or not use vCenter 4.0 Foundation.

Yes SRM is suppoted using vCenter Server Foundation at both sites.

VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager requires an adequate number of vSphere Standard, Advanced, Enterprise or Enterprise Plus licenses and two instances of vCenter Server Standard or Foundation (one for the protected site, one for the failover site)
