DR and Migration Operations #
After you complete the implementation of VMware Cloud Director Availability, you can perform common operations on the environment related to maintaining the proper functionality of the DR and Migration services.
For operational guidance on the components that are deployed automatically in VMware Cloud Foundation or complement the basic VMware Cloud Foundation configuration, see the VMware Cloud Foundation Operations and Administration Guide in the VMware Cloud Foundation documentation.
Personas in DR and Migration #
Personas describe types of system users, aligned with real people and their functions within the organization. You build a persona set based on your organization’s requirements for role-based access control.[Read more]
Operational Verification of DR and Migration #
After you add a VMware Cloud Director Availability instance in your VMware Cloud Foundation environment during the implementation of the DR and Migration validated solution, verify that the newly-implemented and reconfigured components are operational and functioning within expected parameters.[Read more]
Certificate Management for DR and Migration #
The security of your environment depends on the validity and trust of the SDDC component certificates. After you deploy and configure the standalone VMware Cloud Director Availability instance to your VMware Cloud Foundation environment, you replace the component certificate if the certificate is expiring or compromised, or some of the certificate attributes, such as the host or organization name, must be changed.[Read more]
Password Management for DR and Migration #
Manage the account passwords of the components in your VMware Cloud Foundation environment according to the design objectives and design guidance of DR and Migration validated solution.[Read more]
Shutdown and Startup of DR and Migration #
In certain cases, for example, during hardware or power maintenance of the data center, you must shut down the standalone VMware Cloud Director Availability instance in a VMware Cloud Foundation environment in a way that prevents data loss and appliance malfunction, and start it up restoring component integration after the maintenance operation is over.[Read more]
Metering of DR and Migration #
After implementing DR and Migration you must take steps to ensure that proper usage metering of the new VMware Cloud Director Availability replications begins.[Read more]
