Along with monitoring the virtual machine replication progress from the on-premises vCenter, you can also monitor it from the vCloud Air – Dedicated Disaster Recovery UI.

Ensure that you are logged in to your Dedicated Disaster Recovery site.


Click Disaster Recovery.


Click the Replications tab.

The virtual machine in the list is in the Configuring state and after it is configured the Replication Status changes to Initial Full Sync.


After the Initial Full Sync is complete, the Replication Status changes to Replication OK (Incoming).


After the sync is complete, the Replication Status under the Replications tab changes to Success.

Do not manually power ON the replicated virtual machines in the cloud, because you may need to use the Test Recovery option for testing or the Recovery option in case of a disaster, which is explained in the next section.
