We are having to move datacenters so i am looking to use vSphere Replication to handle this. I am not able to find the answer anywhere.
Okay here is the configuration
vCenter Appliance is running on a 4 node esxi cluster in Washington DC
vSphere Replication Appliance(and default Replication Server) is also in the same cluster in Washington DC
Remote Site 1 - vsphere datacenter object with a 4 node esxi cluster
New Remote site 2 - vsphere datacenter object with a 4 node cluster.
I need to migrate the VM's from Remote Site 1 to New Remote Site 2
It looks like the heavy lifting processing will be handled by the the vSphere Replication Appliance(with the default Replication Server) in Washington DC.
Should i install another vSphere Replication Server in Remote Site 1 to handle the processing and not have the Replication Server in Washington DC do it?
if I understood right, you should have also a vSphere Replication on the secondary site.
So, in washington DC i have the vSphere Replication Appliance and vSphere Replication Server.
Remote Site(London) - no Replication Server
New Remote Site 2(Woking) - no Replication Server
I will need to replicate the 60 VMs from London to Woking
Should I install a second vSphere Replication Server to do the processing from London To Woking?
i have read the document you provided but it is not telling me what is doing the processing. Any ideas?
