No worries dear, the role of the community is to help each others in order to provide the best solutions.

Noting that the controller cluster exist always on the active site. and regarding your screenshot it is correct you have to deploy the controller cluster on the DR but when the primary site is down.

Hi Hassan, sorry for my wrong explain. This is my first deployment and I figured since that Controller VM is a VM I would find on secondary site a copy of this to manage a disaster recovery of NSX Infrastructure into primary site. In ufficial VMware documentation I find the following:
