“What are the minimum requirements to use reverse protection for a Move or Failover Live operation and avoid starting replication to new disks?”
This is Vladimir M with Zerto.
There is no requirements needed for reverse protection.
Essentially, if reverse replication is used during a move or live failover, the ZVM will automatically unmount these disks and use them for preseeding, assuming that all settings in the reverse replication settings are valid. Once the disks are being used for the VPG, we will then delete the VM from inventory. Then a delta sync will occur for the VPGs.
Here is a link that explains more about reverse replication: http://s3.amazonaws.com/zertodownload_docs/Latest/Zerto%20Virtual%20Replication%20Zerto%20Virtual%20Manager%20(ZVM)%20-%20vSphere%20Online%20Help/content/adminvc/reverse_protection_for_a_failed_over_vpg.htm?Highlight=reverse
