VPG In A VM Not Protected Status

Viewed 524 times

Root Cause

The VM referenced in the warning is running on a protected site host that does not have a VRA installed. Therefore, Zerto can no longer replicate that VM.


In the VPGs section of the Zerto GUI, a VPG is in a status of “VM Not Protected.”  The following warning may also be seen:  “VPG VPGExample includes the following VMs which are no longer protected: VMExample.”


There are two ways to resolve this issue:
  1. Install a VRA on the host that the VM is currently running on.
  2. In vCenter, vMotion the affected VM to a host with a VRA installed.
