VM groups in an orchestration plan are processed in the order they appear in the Plan Groups list. If some VMs in a group are dependent upon VMs in other groups, make sure that the required group is recovered first.
To change the processing order for VM groups included into an orchestration plan:
- Log in to the VAO UI as a VAO Administrator or Plan Author. For details, see Accessing VAO UI.
- Navigate to Orchestration Plans.
- Select the plan and click Manage > Edit.
- On the Edit Plan page:
- In the Plan Groups column, select a VM group.
- To move the group up or down the list, use the Up and Down arrows in the Plan Groups column.
- To save changes made to the plan settings, click Save.
By design, each orchestration plan contains two default groups — Pre-plan steps and Post-plan steps. These groups include plan steps that run before and after the recovery process. You cannot change the processing order for the Pre-plan steps and Post-plan steps groups, but you can add and remove steps for these groups.
