|I want to setup a test failover on a lab server and understand how to verify remote site has replicated an sw upgrade. need testing proceedure|
You can choose Failover Test (FOT) or Offsite Clone for your testing, depending on how long the testing period will be.
If the testing will be just one hour or two, you can run an FOT and rollback after the testing.
This also means that the testing doesn’t require the test VM has its own disks actually created on the recovery site.
If the testing will take hours or even days, and also an independent VM is needed, please consider the Offsite Clone option.
For more details about FOT and Offsite clone, please kindly refer to the following sections of ZVM admin guide:
“CHAPTER 15: TESTING RECOVERY ” Page 324
“CHAPTER 19: CLONING A VPG TO THE RECOVERY SITE” Page 355
