How to Configure Site Pair in vSphere Replication 8 Step by Step

Configure Site Pair in vSphere Replication

vSphere Replication is used to replicate virtual machines from one site to another or within the same site. So by replicating virtual machines, you can be sure that if any site fails you can still recover your virtual machines easily from another site. In this post, we will see How to Configure Site Pair in vSphere Replication 8 Step by Step.

Site Pair is the first thing you do after Installation & configuration of vSphere Replication. In which you pair your source & target sites so you can configure VM replication. To configure the site pair you must have installed vSphere Replication at both sites. .

To Configure Site Pair you must have the following things in place:

  • Each site must have at least one data center.
  • The remote site must have hardware, network, and storage resources that can support the same virtual machines and workloads as the local site.
  • The sites must be connected by a reliable IP network.
  • The remote site must have access to networks (public and private) comparable to the ones on the local site, although not necessarily the same range of network addresses.

So Let’s see How to Configure Site Pair in vSphere Replication 8 Step by Step:

Step 1:
Login to vCenter Server.
