Failover using RP4VM's

Jump to solution

Hello all,

We have RecoverPoint for VM's with XtremIO.

Customer has over 1000VM's and we are planning to create one CG per VM so that VM level failover is possible.

In such a scenario is it possible to failover say specific 200 VM's simultaneously?

Also what  would be the best way to completely failover all the Vm's to DR site?.

Any video/screenshots on exactly the re-iping process will work using glue scripts

Thanks and Regards

Hi Raghav,

At this time you can have 128 CGs per vRPA cluster and 8 vRPA clusters per VC which equals 1024 VMs if a a single VM per CG is required.

Now in terms of mass failover capability you have the ability control all CGs using a Group Set BUT this option is per vRPA cluster.

Hi Rich,

Thanks a lot for the quick response.

Any video/procedure which can be shared for the re-iping procedure which will change the ip address during failover?.

Thanks and Regards
