We are going to migrate our data centre as per the following requirement:
Site A: Current Production Site ——–>Site B Current DR Site
Site C : Future Production Site ———-> Site D: Future DR Site
Our requirement is as follows:
Replicate from SiteA —–>SiteC
Break the link between Site A and Site C
Failover to Site C
Replicate from Site C to Site D
Failover to Site D
Fail back to Site C
Once done we establish the connection between Site A and Site C.
How can we make sure that data replication is done from Site A to Site C and not the other way round?
If this scenario is possible at all? Or an alternate scenario.
Mike from Zerto here. If I am following your scenario properly, what you will have in the end is the following (assuming you have a license that allows for One-To-Many and that Reverse Protection is being used in all Failovers):
May I ask why the requirement is to have replication going from Site A to Site C in this scenario? I do not believe there is a way to have replication going from both Site A to Site C and Site C to Site D if all of the same VMs are being replicated without some sort of VM cloning being done.
