vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR-Part 3: Site Pairing

By | 25/09/2018

In last post of this series we configured the vCAV-C2C appliance for both Site A & B. In this post we will learn how to perform site pairing so that tenants can start replicating workloads between 2 cloud instances.

If you are not following along this series, then I recommend reading earlier posts of this series from below links:

1: Introduction to vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR

2: vCAV-C2C-POC Deployment

To perform site pairing, login to vCAV-C2C appliance of site A by connecting to https://VCAV-FQDN:8046 and navigating to Sites > New Site and enter IP/FQDN of VCAV appliance of Site B.

Accept the SSL certificate.

If your configuration is correct, you will see a succesful site pairing message.

c2csp-3

Under Sites > Show all sites, you can see the pairing information.

On diagnostics page you can verify health of Site A & B

And that’s it for this post. In next post of this series we will perform replication of workloads across 2 cloud.
