Log in to the Orchestrator client as an administrator and select Design or Run from the drop-down menu in the left upper corner.

2

Click the Workflows view.

3

Select Library > SRM > Configuration.

4

Run the Configure Local Sites workflow.

The workflow registers the Site Recovery Manager certificates, so that you can access the Site Recovery Manager inventory.

a

Right-click the workflow and select Start workflow.

b

Select whether to install the SSL certificates automatically without user confirmation and click Submit.

5

Run the Configure Remote Site workflow.

The workflow registers the Site Recovery Manager certificates on the remote vCenter Server or Platform Services Controller, so that you can log in to the remote site.

a

Right-click the workflow and select Start workflow.

b

Click Not set and, from the inventory tree, select the local site.

c

Select whether to install the SSL certificates automatically without user confirmation and click Submit.

6

Run the Login Remote Site workflow.

The workflow logs you to the remote site, so that you can run other Site Recovery Manager workflows.

a

Right-click the workflow and select Start workflow.

b

Click Not set and, from the inventory tree, select the local site.

Provide a user name and password for the site and click Submit.

Note

You must run this workflow once per Orchestrator client session. The Orchestrator logs out of Site Recovery Manager when you log out of the Orchestrator client.

Perform the procedure on the opposite Site Recovery Manager site to create and run workflows on both sites.
