Failover Job Wizard for VMware: Networks

When the replica network – or target VMware virtual network, – differs from the network address where the source VMs are deployed – or source VMware virtual network, – your failover job needs a relation between these networks to be performed successfully. Such relation is called a network mapping.

To map source VMware virtual networks to appropriate target virtual networks, please do the following on the Networks page of the wizard:

  1. Select Enable network mapping.

  2. The Network Mappings dialog box opens. You have the following options:

    • Create a new network mapping:

      1. Click Create new mapping.

      2. The New Network Mapping dialog opens. Choose a source network and a target network and click Save.

    • Add an existing network mapping:

      1. Click Add existing mapping.

      2. The Network Mappings dialog opens. Choose one or more appropriate network mappings and close the dialog box.

    • Edit an existing network mapping:

      1. Hover over the necessary item in the Network Mappings list and then click the Edit button to the right of the item.

      2. The Edit Network Mapping dialog box opens. Choose an appropriate item from the Target network drop-down list and then click Save.

    • Delete an existing mapping: hover over the necessary item in the Network Mappings list and then click the X icon to the right of the item.

    • To leave the list of existing network mappings intact, go to the next page of the wizard.

  3. Click Next to go to the next page of the wizard.
