Hello Chetan, Hope Jonas’s response is helpful in clarifying your doubts.

In furtherance to that, I would like to mention a few reference documents for more details or to help you with any follow up queries:

For more details on protection domains: Data Protection and Recovery with Prism Element

(P.S. For this particular query I would suggest Focus section: Configuring Data Protection with Asynchronous Replication and further)

Hi there!

if you chose ”protect” the VM will be protected in the ProtectionDomain, and replication of that VM will be made possible to another cluster if you like.


Simply press the protect button to ”add” the selected vm(s) to the protection domain.

If you for some reason, dont want the VM to be protected anymore, you can remove it from the protection domain by simply mark the VM in the Protected Entities ans press the Unprotect button.


Protect = Add 

Unprotect = Remove


Hope that helps :)
