Hello, I currently have two Sites, with Site Recovery Manager (Primary Site and Secondary Site).
Each site has its respective licensing. Soon we are about to receive new physical servers, what we want is for these new servers to become our new Secondary Site, which would lead to deploying and configuring a new instance of Site Recovery Manager.
The Secondary Site that we currently have would be our new main Site.
Of course all this once we run the replica of our VMs.
The question I have is about licensing. Can we reuse the license from the First Site once we replicate to the Secondary Site? Or should we buy a new license for the new SRM instance?
Assuming the primary site is decommissioned and is not actively running or hosting VM's then there is no issue of license reuse.
If you are setting up a new vCenter with a new license, as long as the SRM versions are compatible, there should also be no issue of license removal from the old site and adding it to the new site. (decommission and reuse, not parallel use)
Please reach out if you have further questions.
