  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 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.
