This feature was introduced with vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5.x. This allowed customers to use vSphere Replication as the primary replication engine to replicate data from one Site to another and then useContinue reading “"Target disk UUID validation failed" Error while configuring vSphere Replication on a Pre-seeded VMDK”
