Setting Group Processing Order

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:

  1. Log in to the Orchestrator UI as an Orchestrator Administrator or Plan Author. For more information, see Accessing Orchestrator UI.
  2. Navigate to Orchestration Plans.
  3. Select the plan and click Manage > Edit.
  4. On the Edit Plan page:
  1. In the Plan Groups column, select a VM group.
  2. To move the group up or down the list, use the Up and Down arrows in the Plan Groups column.
  3. To save changes made to the plan settings, click Save.



By design, each orchestration plan contains 2 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. For more information, see Configuring Steps.
