Step 7. Add Plan Steps

In this article

    At the VM Steps step of the wizard, use the list of plan steps available for the scope to select steps to be performed for VMs in the plan during failover. The wizard allows you to add the selected steps multiple times so you can run the same steps with different parameters.

    For a step to be displayed in the Available Steps list, it must be included into the list of plan components available for the scope, as described in section Including Plan Steps.


    To allow the storage failover process to perform successfully, the Register VM step must execute before any other verification steps. That is why the Register VM step is the only one step that you cannot add to a plan multiple times.

    By default, Orchestrator will perform the same selected steps in the same order for all new VMs that will later appear in the VM groups included in the plan. However, you can change the step execution order and modify the list of steps individually for each VM, as described in section Configuring Steps.


    If a VM stores its disk files on multiple datastores, Orchestrator will run verification steps for this VM only once when processing the first VM group in the list of groups selected at the VM Groups step of the wizard.
