Hello I need a clarification regarding a srm configuration.


Currently I have configured a solution srm based on version 4.1 of VMware (vCenter, ESX, srm) using  HP blades servers and two HP EVA8400 as storage (one at the primary site and the other to the secondary site) see attachement srm eng.jpg.


Everything works fine.


Now it was necessary to add another customer to my datacenter, and this new customer wants to have its own vCenter, its own SRM and its own cluster Vmware but want to use the same storage.


So I would like to know if the configuration that I report in attcahnment srm2 eng is a supported solution.


In a few words I would use the same storage for both customers at the primary site, not by creating two separate clusters on the same vCenter, but setting up a new Vcenter , a new SRM and a new cluster.




P.S. This thread has been moved from VMware>General to  ESX. -HP Forum Moderator

Re: VMWARE SRM with EVA8400

Re: VMWARE SRM with EVA8400



You can configure two instances of SRM setup on the same storage, but make sure there is no violation in licensing for the protected site and also at the storage replication front.


Also you can follow the Best Practices to get the optimal performance out of it.


Some of FAQ's on SRM:


In the diagram the SRM Customer 2 (Protected site)  is pointing to SRM Customer 1 (Recovery Site), I believe that could lead to misconfiguration.
