Is there any documentation and/or any experience with moving off an EMC Recovery Point appliance or RPA  to vSphere SRM vAppliance?

Any information and/or experience with this scenerio?

There isn't any documentation specifically on moving between array-based replication (RecoverPoint) and vSphere Replication. The process would basically be:

- Configure replication for VM using vSphere Replication

- Remove VM from array-based replication protection group (and off replicated LUN/Datastore)

- Add VM to vSphere Replication Protection group - configure recovery, add to recovery plans, etc

To upgrade from vCenter 5/SRM 5 to vCenter 6/SRM 6 see the VMware Product Interop Matrixes > Upgrade Path for details.

Does this answer your questions?
