Step 2. Specify Job Name and Description

At the Name step of the wizard, specify the job name and description and define advanced settings of for the replication job.

  1. In the Name field, enter a name for the replication job.
  2. In the Description field, provide a description for future reference. The default description contains information about the user who created a job, date and time when the job was created.
  3. If you plan to replicate VMs to a DR site, you can use a number of advanced settings for the job:
  • Select the Low connection bandwidth check box to enable the Seeding step in the wizard. Replica seeding can be used if you plan to replicate VMs to a remote site and want to reduce the amount of traffic sent over the network during the first run of the replication job.
  • Select the Separate virtual networks check box to enable the Network step in the wizard. If the network in the DR site does not match the production network, you can resolve this mismatch by creating a network mapping table.
  • Select the Different IP addressing scheme check box to enable the Re-IP step in the wizard. Re-IP possibilities can be used to automate reconfiguration of replica IP addresses for Microsoft Windows VMs if IP schemes in the DR and production sites do not match.
