When you subscribe to the Disaster Recovery service, VMware creates two default networks for the service—an isolated network and an external routed network. The gateway for the routed network has a public IP address on its outside interface so that the routed networkon the inside interface is accessible through the Intranet. You can use these networks for your virtual machines protected by the Disaster Recovery service.

When you configure Disaster Recovery in vSphere Replication by using the Connect to a cloud provider wizard, you specify which networks to use for the Test network and the Recovery network. The network choices that appear in the wizard are the networks configured for vCloud Air.

See Connect to a Cloud Provider Site in vSphere Replication 5.6 for Disaster Recovery to Cloud for information.

You can choose to use the vCloud Air default networks for the Disaster Recovery service; for example, specify the default isolated network as your test network and the default routed network as your recovery network. If you decide to create networks for test and recovery in vCloud Air, you must update the target networks in the vSphere Web Client.

For information about updating your target networks in the the vSphere Web Client, see Select Recovery Networks on the Target Virtual Data Center in vSphere Replication 5.6 for Disaster Recovery to Cloud.

For information about adding networks in vCloud Air, see Add a Network to a Virtual Data Center in the vCloud Air Networking Guide.

When you test a recovery or recover a virtual machine to the cloud, vCloud Air attaches the virtual machine to the test or recovery networks respectively.
