You run inventory mappings workflows to specify how Site Recovery Manager maps the resources on Protected Site A to resources on Recovery Site B.

In this scenario you map the virtual machines in Folder A, Production A network, and Host A on the Protected Site A to the corresponding folder, network, and host resources on Recovery Site B.

Note

You run the current workflows on Protected Site A.

To configure the reverse mappings, you can run the following procedure on Recovery Site B by using the opposite source and destination resources or you can configure the reverse mappings by using the Site Recovery Manager interface.

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.

Verify that Folder A is not mapped to any folder. You can check the folder mappings by using the Site Recovery Manager interface.

Verify that the Production A network and Host A are not mapped to another network and host. You can check the existing network and resource mappings by running the Get Network Mappings and Get Resource Mapping workflows or by using the Site Recovery Manager interface.

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