Failover to Cloud Director Replica

If a VM is processed by a VMware Cloud Director replication job, 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:

  1. On the Machines tab, select a machine processed by a Cloud Director replication job.
  2. Click Restore vApp.
  3. In the Restore window, select a restore point of the vApp.
  4. Click Restore.
  5. To confirm failover, click Yes.

To view the failover progress, on the Machines tab, click History.
