Scheduling Failover

You can schedule a time for a CDP replica plan to execute. Only the failover process can be scheduled — all other operations (failback, undo failover and so on) must be performed manually in the Orchestrator UI.

To schedule a CDP replica plan:

  1. Navigate to Recovery Plans.
  2. Select the plan. From the Launch menu, select Schedule.


Right-click the plan name and select Launch > Schedule.

  1. Complete the Schedule Plan wizard:

  1. At the Schedule Options step, set the Scheduled execution toggle to On, and choose whether you want to run the plan on schedule or after any other plan.
  • If you want to run the plan at a specific time, select the Schedule on option, click the Schedule icon, set the desired date and time, and click Apply.
  • If you want to run the plan after another plan, select the Schedule after option and click Choose a Plan. Then, in the Select Plan window, select the necessary plan and click OK.

For a plan to be displayed in the Available Plans list, it must be ENABLED as described in section Running and Scheduling CDP Replica Plans.
