Deployment Guide for Hyper-V Recovery Manager

Updated: January 16, 2014

Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager orchestrates and manages the protection and failover of Hyper-V virtual machines located in clouds on Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) servers running on System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or System Center 2012 R2. On-going asynchronous replication of each virtual machine is provided by Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Replica, and it is monitored and coordinated by Hyper-V Recovery Manager. Using Hyper-V Recovery Manager, you can perform testing for your recovery configuration, perform a proactive failover and recovery, or automate recovery in the event of a site outage or other unexpected event.

This deployment guide helps you to deploy a working Hyper-V Recovery Manager environment. After you complete the walkthrough, Hyper-V virtual machines that you select will be configured for failover and recovery. In addition, you can verify the configuration by running a test failover.

The walkthrough consists of the following steps:

  1. Read through the Deployment prerequisites for Hyper-V Recovery Manager. Check the deployments requirements, and complete the planning steps before beginning your deployment.

  2. Step 1: Configure Hyper-V Recovery Manager vaults—Create a vault, and upload a management certificate to it.

  3. Step 2: Install the Provider and register the VMM servers—Install the Hyper-V Recovery Manager agent on the VMM servers on which the clouds you want to protect are located, and register the VMM servers with the vault.

  4. Step 3: Configure protection settings for VMM clouds—Map source and destination clouds and locations, configure snapshots to be taken, and specify initial replication settings.

  5. Step 4: Configure network mapping—Create mappings between VM networks on source and destination VMM servers.

  6. Step 5: Enable protection for Hyper-V virtual machines—In the VMM console, enable failover and recovery for virtual machines located in protected clouds.

  7. Step 6: Create and customize recovery plans—Create and customize recovery plans that specify how virtual machines should be grouped and failed over.
