How to Add Target Site in vSphere Replication

VMware vSphere Replication is an VMware solution for data protection and disaster recovery for all your virtual machines in your environment. VMware vSphere Replication is a hypervisor-based, asynchronous replication solution for vSphere virtual machines. It is fully integrated with VMware vCenter Server and the vSphere Web Client. vSphere Replication delivers flexible, reliable and cost-efficient replication.

You can use vSphere Replication with the vCenter Server Appliance or with a standard vCenter Server installation. You can have a vCenter Server Appliance on one site and a standard vCenter Server installation on the other. With vSphere Replication, you can replicate virtual machines from a source datacenter to a target site quickly and efficiently.

In this series of vSphere Replication we have successfully deployed the vSphere Replication Appliance & Integrated vCenter Server into vSphere Replication. In this post we will see on How to Add Target Site in vSphere Replication. Target site can be any DR Site which you have configured for replicating the VM’s. Before adding Target site make sure you have installed the vSphere Replication at Target site also.

So let’s see How to Add Target site in vSphere Replication:

Step 1:
Login to vSphere Web Client.
Select the vCenter Server.
Go to Configure Tab,
Expand the vSphere Replication and select the Target Sites.
Select the Icon as shown to add the Target site.


Step 2:
Provide the vCenter Server details of the Target site or the DR Site.
Click Log In.


Step 3:
You will see the Target sites below.
Click OK to add.


Now you can see the Target site in the list. You can add more then 2 Target sites also.



That’s it we have successfully added the Target site in the vSphere Replication. In the Next post we will see on How to Replicate VM’s from DC site to DR site.
