Configure resource mappings


You must map your resources on the protected site and recovery site so that virtual machines are configured to fail over into one group of hosts or the other.

What you will need

You must have connected the protected and recovery sites.

Note In Site Recovery Manager (SRM), resources can be resource pools, ESXi hosts, or vSphere clusters.


  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 Resource Mappings.

  4. Click the Add icon icon to create a new resource mapping.

    The Create Resource Mapping wizard appears.

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

    1. Select Automatically Prepare Mappings for Resource 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 Resource Mappings page displays the protected site resources and the recovery site resources. You can follow the same steps for other networks in your environment.
