Process CDP Replica VM

In this article

    This step performs a number of actions that depend on the plan state:

    • Failover — you will fail over from the source VM to the VM replica using the selected restore point. The VM replica will be powered on.
    • Undo Failover — you will switch back to the source VM. Changes made to the VM replica will be discarded. The source VM will be powered on.
    • Failback — you will fail back from the VM replica to the source VM. Changes made to the VM replica will be synchronized with the source VM. The source VM will be powered on.

    You can override the following parameters for the Process CDP Replica VM step:

    Parameter

    Description

    Default Value

    Critical Step

    Defines whether the step is critical for VM recovery.  

    If you mark the step as Critical, its failure for a VM from a critical VM group will halt the plan.

    Yes

    Failover Timeout

    Timeout (in seconds) used for the Failover and Undo Failover operations.

    1200

    Failback Timeout

    Timeout (in minutes) used for the Failback operation.

    Note: The default parameter value is set to 0, which means that Orchestrator will wait for the step to complete for as long as required. However, if you run the Halt action to halt the failback process, Orchestrator will halt the plan immediately, despite the infinite timeout value.

    0

    Retries

    Number of retries that will be attempted if the step fails on the first try.

    2

    Failback & Undo Failover Action

    Defines whether the step will be executed during the Failback and Undo Failover operations.

    Execute (not editable)

    Test Action

    Defines whether the step will be executed during plan testing in a DataLab.

    Note: The default parameter value is set to Skip since the current product version does not support testing of CDP replica plans.
