Creating CDP Policies

To protect VMs with CDP, you must configure a CDP policy. The CDP policy defines which VMs to protect, where to store replicas, how often create short-term and long-term restore points, and so on. One CDP policy can process one or multiple VMs.

To create a CDP policy use the New CDP Policy wizard.

  1. Check prerequisites.
  2. Launch the New CDP Policy wizard.
  3. Specify a job name and advanced settings.
  4. Select VMs to replicate.
  5. Exclude objects from being replicated.
  6. Specify the VM processing order.
  7. Select a destination for replicas.
  8. Configure network mapping.
  9. Configure re-IP rules.
  10. Configure seeding and mapping.
  11. Specify data transfer and replica settings.
  12. Specify notification settings.
  13. Configure a replication schedule.
  14. Specify guest processing settings.
  15. Finish working with the wizard.
