If you have not specified inventory mappings for your site, you must configure resource mappings for individual virtual machines. You can configure resource mappings only if site-wide inventory mappings have not been established.

If inventory mappings have been established for a site, you cannot override them by configuring the protection of individual virtual machines. If you need to override inventory mappings for a few members of a protection group, use the vSphere Client to connect to the recovery site and edit the settings of the placeholders or move them to a different folder or resource pool.

1

Click Protection Groups, and navigate to the protection group that includes the virtual machine that you want to configure.

2

On the Virtual Machines page, right-click a virtual machine and click Configure Protection.

If you established inventory mappings, they are applied.

3

Configure mappings as needed.

For most virtual machines, you can change the Folder and Compute Resource mappings. For more information, see Configure Protection for a Virtual Machine or Template.
