You can recover a virtual machine to the cloud when needed, for example, if the source site is unavailable. When you recover a virtual machine, it becomes a fully functional virtual machine. Replication stops when you recover the virtual machine.

If the plug-in is not affected by the site failure, you can use the plug-in to recover the virtual machine. Otherwise, use the vCloud Air portal.


In the vCloud Air plug-in, navigate to your Disaster Recovery cloud instance, then to the Disaster Recovery virtual data center.


Click the Related Objects tab, then click the Virtual Machines tab.


Select the virtual machine, right-click, and select All vCloud Air Plug-in Actions > Recover.
