VMware Explore happening NOW!

VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager Update 1

VMware’s new names certainly make for much longer titles, don’t they?  That said, I found out from Mr. Scott Lowe, that SRM Update 1 is now available.

Some of the new goodies include:

  • SRM has separated the permission to test a recovery plan and to actually run a recovery plan. This allows more junior admins to test the plan, but reserve actually running the plan for a more senior admin, for example.
  • RDM support, which enables failover for MSCS clusters
  • Batch IP property customization
