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.
