We are currently implementing a Zerto 7.5 Build-1 environment on ESXi 18.104.22.168. Managing in the neighborhood of 300+ Production Level VM’s and wanted to get feed back from environment implementations of larger scale.
What you’re doing that works, how your building out VPG’s, Pit falls, Nice to Knows, and the like.
As a Nice to Know for a VM in any size environment – if you revert the source machine to a snapshot you must run the force sync command on the VPG or else you’ll have trouble failing over to it. Zerto is not snapshot aware.
Though they added the feature in 6.5 for
• As reverting a protected VM from a VMware snapshot renders it inconsistent, ZVM now automatically
detects such events and automatically force-syncs the VPG.
Does this not work?
Replicating 120 VMs from 17 Prod ESXi hosts to 13 DR ESXi 6.5 hosts at our warm site (OKC -> NJ).
