DC DR replication using Protection Domain

I have AHV cluster at both DC & DR, which has number of VMs being protected with Protection Domain feature. These VMs are being replicated from DC to DR in scheduled manner.

Now as a part of DR drill, I need to run these production VMs from DR for period of time and then again make it functional from DC once drill is over.

I am concerned over how the delta changes made during drill with VMs at DR will be again replicated back to DC as Protection Domain replication is uni directional (DC to DR) ?

Any recommendations ?

Hi @jitendra 


Performing Planned Failover:


Performing Failback:


When you migrate the DR PD back to the active site, only the deltas will be replicated back. 


Hope this helps
