    Replicating a 'non running' vm ??

    tekhie999 Novice

      hi .. i have a couple of questions regarding how the replication appliances handles VM's that are not running.


      If i shutdown a guest OS in a controlled way, does the appliance perform a sync of whatever has not been replicated as part of the shutdown ? So if the VM had a 1hour RPO, and i shut it down after 30 minutes .. will the changes only be at Source site until i power it back on, and the changes are subsequently replicated ?


      similarly, if i have a VM with a 1hr RPO and it blue screens after 30 minutes and cannot be recovered, would any changes in that first 30 minutes be lost ? Or could they be replicated somehow even though the VM is not running ?


      Thanks for any advice!
