Testing SRM5 without powering off the production

One of the best feature of VMware SRM is the ability to test the DR plan without disrupting the production.
I've tested it in my home lab with the environment depicted in the previous posts.

In the videos below you can see what happens at the recovery site when a test plan gets triggered (test button pressed) and what happens (well... Does not happen is better) at the protected site.

You must keep your attention at the creation of visible LUN and at the automatic setup of the fenced vSwitch at the recovery site.




What is happening during test t the protected site?
