You created the protection group with Datastore A. To protect your virtual machines when you use array-based replication, you must configure the protection of your virtual machines that reside on Datastore A. The next step is to configure the protection of your virtual machines by running the Protect All Unprotected Virtual Machines Associated with the Protection Group workflow.

By running the workflow, you apply the configured inventory mappings to your virtual machines and create placeholder virtual machines on the placeholder Datastore B on Recovery Site B. For information about applying inventory mappings to your virtual machines, see the Apply Inventory Mappings to All Members of a Protection Group topic in the Site Recovery Manager Administration documentation.

In this scenario all virtual machines in Datastore A are unprotected.

Note

You run the current workflow on Protected Site A.

Connect to Protected Site A by using the Orchestrator client.

Verify that you ran the Login Remote Site workflow for the current Orchestrator client session.

Create a protection group for array-based replication. See User Scenario: Create a Protection Group for Array-Based Replication.
