Including Recovery Locations
Unless a recovery location is INCLUDED into the list of plan components available for a scope, it will not be visible for use in orchestration plans for the scope. By default, all added locations are excluded from the list of plan components available for scopes created manually; only the Admin Scope has all the locations included.
By design, the list of available recovery locations will always display restore recovery locations only. For storage recovery locations, there is no need to include added locations into the list of plan components — VAO automatically identifies the necessary locations to be used to recover VMs when running storage plans. For more information on the way VAO analyzes settings specified during the configuration of storage recovery locations, see How VAO Processes Resources.
To modify the list of recovery locations available for a scope:
- Log in to the VAO UI as a VAO Administrator. For more information, see Accessing VAO UI.
- Switch to the Administration page.
- Navigate to Plan Components > Recovery Locations.
- Select the scope:
- Click the Scopes link.
- In the Change Scope window, select a check box next to the required scope, and click Apply.
- Select check boxes next to the necessary locations, and click Include or Exclude.
You can simultaneously edit the list of plan components available for multiple scopes. To do that, select check boxes next to the required scopes in the Change Scope window. After you click Include or Exclude, the changes will be applied to all the selected scopes at the same time.
After you make a recovery location INCLUDED for a scope, Plan Authors will be able to add this location to restore plans for the scope and to select the location when running failback.
