When Orchestrator tests a plan according to a specific schedule, the duration of the testing process equals the RTO value configured when creating the plan. If you instruct Orchestrator to test multiple plans at the same time, the duration of the testing process equals the maximum of the configured plan RTO values. Therefore, Orchestrator does not allow you to schedule other tests in the same DataLab until the RTO is over.
