Creating Cloud Failover Plans for vCloud Director Replicas

If you have a number of VMs running interdependent applications, you need to fail over them one by one, as a group. To do this automatically, you can prepare a cloud failover plan.

The process of creating a cloud failover plan for VMs whose replicas reside in vCloud Director differs from the regural one. The difference is that you do not need to specify default gateway settings and public IP addressing rules for such VMs. Network resources required to provide access to VM replicas from the internet after full site failover are managed by the SP in vCloud Director.

Before creating a cloud failover plan, check prerequisites. Then use the Cloud Failover Plan wizard to create a cloud failover plan.

  1. Launch the Cloud Failover Plan wizard.
  2. Specify the failover plan name and description.
  3. Select virtual machines.
  4. Review summary and finish working with wizard.
