Configure network mappings


You must configure your resource mappings like VM networks, ESXi hosts, and folders on both sites to enable the mapping of each resource from the protected site to the appropriate resource at the recovery site.

You must complete the following resource configurations:

  • Network mappings

  • Folder mappings

  • Resource mappings

  • Placeholder datastores

What you will need

You must have connected the protected and recovery sites.


  1. Log in to your vCenter Server and click on Site Recovery > Sites.

  2. Select your protected site, and then click Manage.

  3. In the Manage tab, select Network Mappings.

  4. Click the globe icon icon to create a new network mapping.

    The Create Network Mapping wizard appears.

  5. In the Create Network Mapping wizard, perform the following:

    1. Select Automatically Prepare Mappings for Networks with Matching Names, and click Next.

    2. Select the required data center objects for the protected and recovery sites, and click Add Mappings.

    3. Click Next after mappings are created successfully.

    4. Select the object that was used earlier to create reverse mapping, and then click Finish.


The Network Mappings page displays the protected site resources and the recovery site resources. You can follow the same steps for other networks in your environment.
