To validate your DR plans without impacting the production infrastructure, you can configure automatic scheduled testing for VM replicas and application verification. For this purpose, VAO uses virtual labs created in Veeam Backup & Replication console. These virtual labs provide an isolated environment in which VAO performs VM verification.
After you create a virtual lab on a Veeam Backup & Replication server in the DR VAO site, you must configure a connection to the VMware Server used to manage the lab, as described in section Connecting VMware vSphere Servers. Otherwise, VAO will not be able to discover the virtual lab and make it available in the VAO UI.
