SRM License

Hi,

vCenter 6.5

SRM 6.1

Storage base replication

i'd like to add additional 100 vm to a new site recovery protection group with a new recovery plan, I have purchased the licenses from VMware but unsure how to assign them or even expand the current license capacity from 230 to 330 to accommodate the new Protection Group. I have added the new 100 license to vCenter, but when i create a new protection group with recovery plan it then shows I'm consuming more than the capacity. Its not using the Newly purchased License.

Also, while i'm on the subject of SRM, Can i create multiple Recovery plans for a single protection group. I have added 50 plus VMs to a LUN, I want to DR a group across. Every time i try to create a new Recovery plan it only gives me the option to select the Protection group, not VMs from that group. Is it one recovery plan for one protection group?

Usage is high from Capacity of your license as showed in the screenshot which you attached, better increase the capacity of your license that would help you in that case.

or use new license which has sufficient capacity as per your requirement.

When you click Asset
>>> Then you need to click on "Solutions" where you will see SRM Product.
>> Select that and then you can assign license with option "Assign License".


Fyi, only one license you can assigned there.
