We are planning to move an existing VM from one datastore to another datastore within the same vcenter instance. The datastores are geographically separated. My question is: During a move operation, does Zerto use the existing replica disks at the targeted recovery location to create/move the VM? Or would it copy the replica disks and essentially double the amount of disk space utilized until the replica disks are deleted? Thank you
This is Vladimir M with Zerto. Zerto will use the existing replicated disks at the target site to spin up the VM.
Here is a link that helps explains the operation in further detail—–> http://s3.amazonaws.com/zertodownload_docs/Latest/Zerto%20Virtual%20Replication%20Zerto%20Virtual%20Manager%20%28ZVM%29%20-%20vSphere%20Online%20Help/index.html#page/AdministratorforZertoVirtualManager%2FMoving_VC.17.2.html
