The trouble is the requirements of stretched VMware HA and SRM are at odds with each other. In SRM the architecture demands two separate vCenters managing distinct ESX hosts. In contrast, VMware HA requires that the two or more hosts that make up an HA cluster be managed by just one vCenter. Now, I dare say that with a little bit of planning and forethought this configuration could be engineered. But remember, the real usage of VMware HA is to restart VMs when an ESX host fails within a site—something that most people would not regard as a DR event.

When I started writing the first edition of this book I had some very ambitious (perhaps outlandish) hopes that I would be able to cover the basic configuration of every storage vendor and explain how to get VMware’s SRM communicating with them. However, after a short time I recognized how unfeasible and unrealistic this ambition was! After all, this is a book about VMware’s SRM—storage and replication (not just storage) is an absolute requirement for VMware’s SRM to function, so I would feel it remiss of me not to at least outline some basic concepts and caveats for those for whom storage is not their daily meat and drink.

That’s not to say failback wasn’t possible; it just took a number of steps to complete the process. 0, and once you have done a couple you soon get into the swing of them. Nonetheless, an automated failback process is a feature that SRM customers have had on their wish lists for some time. Instructions to manage the storage arrays are encoded in what VMware calls Site Recovery Adapters (SRAs). Previously, the SRA only automated the testing and running of SRM’s Recovery Plans. But now the SRAs support the instructions required to carry out a failback routine.
