The datastore will be created by SRM once you initiate a test failover or the actual failover. Just make sure that the target LUNs on which the datastore resides on are presented to the ESX storage group before you run the failover.

The target DS are part of recover point and esxi storage group , let me try that .

The DR ESX hosts should see the LUNs but not the datastores. Once you issue a failover the datastores will be visible.

No problem. Didn't know that the guy asking the question can accept his response as an answer. Good to know I guess. Good luck

Awesome Ernes - that worked thank you so much.

One last question what is best practice to keep the recovery DS' they show up with snapxxxxx etc , our plan is tio keep them in Active / active config ( SRM) , so can we leave the signatures with prefix snapxxx ?

You can leave it as snap-xxxx. That's the default config. You can change that in SRM settings so that the prefix isn't added automatically.

It's not a snap but SRM does that by default.
