ESXi host Upgrades

  • We will be performing upgrades to our Protected site ESXi hosts. Would request how we should configure or handle the VRA’s on the host during the process. Will a complete pause in replication be a best practice? If so, please advise/confirm how and where this would be performed. Site or VPG level?


    My name is Contara from Zerto Support.

    Assume that you have two ESXi hosts.

    – Each host has VRA installed.

    – When the host put into the “Maintenance” mode, the protected VMs should Vmotion out to another host. Except the VRA vm will not Vmotion to another host.

    – The VPG replication continue to go on.

    – On the Maintenance ESXi host you can do the host upgrade. Make sure the VRA is power off.
