Vmware Site Recovery Manager with NetApp Snapmirror

When using Netapp Snap Mirror to clone Volumes to another site / netapp containing Datastores , you can back this up with Vmware’s Site Recovery Manager to be able to spin up the envrioment in a diaster. Using Netapp Mirroring has advantages such as cloning Physical and Virtual RDM’s as well as coping with DeDuplication.

You should already have a SnapMirror and SRM enabled , if not see this guide

Now the important thing will be then to Create a Protection Group or Edit ) , and only add the Datastores to the Datastore Groups that are replicated above to the Protection Groups instead of adding the indvidual machines. This will then add all the VM’s on this protection group to SRM
