We are running Recoverpoint with VMware Site Recovery Manager. I have a few questions that I cannot find answers to...
Is SRM tied to the Consistency Group name? Can we rename Consistency Groups without effecting the SRM configuration?
Also, lets say we have a consistency group (CG_A) with 3 1TB datastore LUNS for an applicaiton. We need to add another 1TB device but instead of adding it, we want to create another Consistency Group (CG_B), add the new device and move one of the 3 1TB devices in the other group (CG_A) to the new group (CG_B). Can we do that without disturbing SRM??
Question 1: SRM is not tied to the CG name. Renaming will not cause any issues
Question 2: You cannot just move one LUN from one CG to another. You can create CG_B and add the new 1tb LUN, that's not a problem. However, if you want to add a LUN that's already in CG_A to CG_B you need to remove the replication set for that LUN from CG_A and add a new replication set to CG_B by using that LUN.
Thanks Ernes. I am running into same scenario and i have a question.
We are running RP 5.0, do we need to disable CG first before we remove that replication set to add to another CG.
Second question, if we remove that set, only Journal written from it will be lost or anything else ?
No journal history loss would occur when removing a Replication Set in RP 5.0 and later.
