VR supports Storage vMotion and SDRS?

Hi, reading the course manual ICM 5.1, the lesson says it supports Storage vMotion y SDRD, but in the VMware documentation says otherwise. Anyone can tell me if it supports or not?

thanks

Presume you may be referring to:

"

Does vSphere Replication support Storage DRS?

Neither array-based replication nor vSphere Replication support using Storage DRS. Storage vMotion of a replicated virtual machine results in a full sync, where both the primary and the recovery side disks are read and hashed, and these hashes are exchanged over the wire which can result in heavy I/O, and this can cause latency on the datastore.

Update History

8/21/2012 - added SDRS support info."
I would assume from past experience that the documentation on the site would trump what your training material - in fairness based on the above reasons it seems valid enough
