Viewed 152 times


When a single vCenter is used, for example with remote branch offices, when replicating from one datacenter to another datacenter, both managed by the same vCenter Server, you have to enable replication to the same vCenter Server and pairing is not required. In this case, replication to the same vCenter must be set in the Site Settings dialog.
