VCP6-DCV blueprint section 6:Configure and Administer a vSphere Backups/Restore/Replication Solution – Part 2

In this post we will continue to the replication part of the objective:

  • Install/Configure/Upgrade vSphere Replication
  • Configure VMware Certificate Authority (VMCA) integration with vSphere Replication
  • Compare and contrast vSphere Replication compression methods

Install/Configure/Upgrade vSphere Replication:

before we start the appliance install we need to create vDS with replication traffic and also add the vCenter server managed address(the same IP you use to connect for mgmt) and dont forget DNS and NTP settings.

Note that after setting the vCenter server managed address , you will need to restart the vCenter server.

After all the perp work is done its time to install the appliance

Mount the iso you downloaded from VMware website and deploy the following ovf file.
