Dears:

We will do “Test Failover” in Prism for a recovery plan. My question is: How to know "Test Failover" brings which recover point for Disaster Recovery (formerly Leap)?

The latest available recovery point? The first available recovery point?

The latest off-course. 

Hi Jeroen:

Thanks. I have another question: If we have different VMs which have different latest snapshot(For example, VM1’s latest snapshot: 10:00. VM2’s latest snapshot: 10:30.) Does the actual “Test Failover” will online VM1’s 10:00 snapshot and VM2’s latest snaphsot: 10:30?

 

Thanks!

Correct. It will always use the latest recovery point created with a protection policy. 

 

If you do the actual failover you can choose a planned failover. And then there will always be a newly snapshot/recovery point created so that there is no dataloss.
