Part 17 – Running a Recovery

Finally, we have arrived to a point where we can run the Recovery. SRM migrates all the VMs in the recovery plan to the recovery site. SRM attempts to shutdown the VMs at the Protected Site. Not everyone in the organization are allowed to run recovery as it alters the entire environment in many cases and reversing things is time consuming and needs effort.

To run the Recovery, click on the Red play button on the quick menu.
