Replicate one datastore, but not whole VM

We have SRM 5.8.1 integrated with an IBM SRA and vSphere 5.5. 

We have a linux VM at the protected site with two LUNS attached and mounted to it (say LUN A and B). We have it's failover VM running at the DR site with only one LUN - A. We currently have array based replication occurring on LUN B. I am trying to figure out what type of recovery plan and/or steps to create to failover LUN B and have it presented as a datastore at the DR site. Plus, if doable, attach the LUN to the DR VM? Hopefully this explains enough, but please ask questions if needed. Thanks for any suggestions.

It's the linux VM at DR/recovery site an SRM placeholder VM?

Is LUN A get replicated from protected site to recovery site?
