Running and Scheduling CDP Replica Plans
After you create and configure a CDP replica plan, and run a successful readiness check, the plan can be considered ready for failover. You can invoke various actions for the plan, depending on the current plan state.
Point in Time
New plan created
After plan creation, you can:
After failover, you can:
After failback, you can:
At any point, you can:
CDP replica plans can acquire the following default states after creation. The same states are shown after resetting a plan and after completing a check.
Plan has never passed a readiness check or has been changed since the last readiness check.
Plan has failed to pass a readiness check.
Plan has successfully passed a readiness check.
CDP replica plans can acquire the following stable states after completing current processing:
Plan has stopped due to either an error or user intervention.
PREPARE FOR FAILBACK
Process completed successfully.
Process completed with one or more warnings.
Process completed with one or more errors.
CDP replica plans can acquire the following active states while in use or in progress:
Plan is being created.
Plan is being edited.
Plan is being saved.
Plan is being reset.
Plan is being deleted.
Plan readiness check is in progress.
Plan readiness check is in progress; one or more warnings encountered.
Plan readiness check is in progress; one or more errors encountered.
Plan readiness check is halting.
Plan is executing.
Plan is executing; one or more warnings encountered.
Plan is executing; one or more errors encountered.
Plan is halting.
If you perform any infrastructure configuration changes (add, delete or rename VMs) or changes to Veeam ONE Business View groups, Orchestrator will not automatically apply these changes to plans that are currently executing — such plans are ‘locked’ and cannot be edited. The changes will take effect only if the plans enter the VERIFIED or NOT VERIFIED state.
CDP replica plans can acquire the following modes:
Plan is ready to be verified and executed.
Plan is ready to be edited.
Plan is either in one of the active states (except the EDITING state) or in one of the stable states.
When a plan is in an active state, you can switch to the Plan Details page, select a VM being recovered in the Virtual Machines column, and click the VM Console link to connect directly to the VM desktop.
Orchestrator will connect to the VM through the vCenter Server system. To avoid connection failures, make sure the following requirements are met:
In vSphere 6.0 and later, each newly created ESXi host is by default provisioned with a self-signed certificate from the VMware Certificate Authority. If you want to use such a certificate when accessing the VM desktop, download the root CA certificate from the host where the VM is registered. To learn how to manage certificates for ESXi hosts, see VMware Docs.
To run a CDP replica plan, it must be ENABLED. To enable a plan:
- Navigate to Orchestration Plans.
- Select the plan.
- From the Manage menu, select Enable.
Right-click the plan name and select Manage > Enable.
If you do not enable a plan before you run it, the Run Plan wizard will force you to do that as soon as you try running the plan.
For more information on roles that can be assigned to users and user groups working with the Orchestrator UI, see Managing Permissions.
