Failover to Cloud Director CDP Replica
If a VM is processed by a VMware Cloud Director CDP policy, you can perform failover of the vApp that contains the VM.
Failover is an intermediate step that needs to be finalized. To do that, you can undo failover, perform permanent failover or perform failback. The final step you can take in Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see the Failover and Failback section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
To perform failover:
- On the Machines tab, select a machine processed by a Cloud Director CDP policy.
- Click Restore vApp.
- In the Restore Points window, select the restore point you need. You can fail over to the latest available crash-consistent state, to the latest application-consistent state, or to a specific point in time.
Application consistency is defined for the whole vApp. A vApp restore point is application-consistent if all VMs have application-consistent restore points. A vApp restore point is mixed if some VMs have crush-consistent restore points.
- Click Failover.
To view the failover progress, on the Machines tab, click History.
