I am wondering if the following setup is possible. I read some documentation on shared recovery (many to one) but not something that applies exactly to our situation.
Site A has SRM setup and replicates TO Site B.
Site B has SRM setup and replicates TO Site C.
The reason for this type of setup is because we are not looking to replicate the servers at Site A to Site C. Both Site A and Site B have their own set of servers, so I'm wondering if there is a way to accomplish this. I thought maybe using the custom SRM extension some way would allow us to accomplish this.
The only way you could realize this would be a split up of your vSphere infrastructure at Site B (2 vCenter, each with a seperate SRM instance). Then you will end up with two seperate one-to-one SRM releationships (A - B1 & B2 & C).
Surely this would have a number of disadvantages from a design perspectiv.
it is technically possible but not with a single instance, you would have to have two vCenters at Site B one to handle the link to Site A and the second to handle the link to Site C. these could be in Linked mode for ease of managment.
