    Full recovery plan without reprotect (severed WAN)

    pstover Novice

      I would like to sever the WAN connection between my 2 datacenters, run recovery, test basic functionality of all VMs and then shut down the recovered datacenter.  Since there was no communication between SRM to SRM and VC to VC, what will I need to do after shutdown of the recovered datacenter?  I was going to do the below:

       

      - delete the Recovery Plan and protection group in DR

      - power down all DR VMs and remove from inventory

      - unmounts datastore from DR hosts

      - get replication reset (Nutanix) in primary > DR direction as needed from DR

      - reconnect the WAN

      - get replication reset (Nutanix) in primary > DR direction as needed from primary

      - ??? with SRM

       

      What state will SRM be in after reconnect of the datacenters?  Will it see no recovery plan, no protection groups (deleted at DR) and I will just recreate the PG and Recovery Plan anew and go on my way?
