Selecting a target host

Previous Next

Replicate VMs > Creating a replication job > Selecting a target host

Choose a Target Host from the list, and click Next.
If you have pre-seeded the VM on the target host, select the host on the target side to which the source VM has been restored. For more information, see Pre-seeding replication jobs. When selecting the target VM name, ensure that you are using the same name as the source VM. vRanger appends “_VzReplicate” to the VM name on the target side.
[Optional] In the Select Target Host dialog box, next to Preseed VM UUID, click the browse button, and select the pre-seeded VM.
IMPORTANT: After a replication job has been saved, you cannot change the target host. If you want to replicate to a different host, you may either use VMware vSphere® vMotion® to migrate the VM to the preferred host, or create a replication job for the preferred target. If you vMotion the VM, the existing replication job should identify the change in host and adjust automatically.

On the Replication Mode page, under Replication Type, select Differential Replication.
NOTE: Hybrid replication is not supported when replicating to or from VMware® ESXi™. This feature is deprecated for vRanger 7.2 and later.
