You deploy VMware Site Recovery to enable fail over of management applications from Region A to Region B in the cases of disaster or planned migration.

1

To be able to install two VMware Site Recovery Manager instances, one in the protected site (Region A), and one in the recovery site (Region B), in each region you must provide a Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual machine that has a certain configuration.

2

Assign vCenter Single Sign-On administrative global permissions to the operations service account svc-srm so that you can manage, pair and perform orchestrated disaster recovery operations between the management vCenter Server instances by using Site Recovery Manager. 

3

Deploy the first VMware Site Recovery Manager instance.

4

In Region B, deploy the second VMware Site Recovery Manager instance.

5

After both VMware Site Recovery Manager Instances are deployed, assign the appropriate licensing and, using the svc-srm service account, pair the Region A and Region B instances and configure the mappings between them to support disaster recovery.
