Step 5: Configure storage mapping: On-premises to on-premises
Updated: February 18, 2015
After clouds are configured and network mapping is in place, you can configure storage classification mapping.
By default when you replicate a virtual machine on a source Hyper-V host server to a target Hyper-V host server, replicated data is stored in the default location that’s indicated for the target Hyper-V host in Hyper-V Manager. For more control over where replicated data is stored, you can configure storage mappings as follows:
Define storage classifications on both the source and target VMM servers. For instructions, see How to create storage classifications in VMM. Note that classifications must be available to the Hyper-V host servers in source and target clouds. Classifications don’t need to have the same type of storage. For example you can map a source classification that contains SMB shares to a target classification that contains CSVs.
After classifications are in place you can create mappings.
By default replicated virtual machines are stored in the default location on the target Hyper-v host server. If you'll replicate using Hyper-V and you want to control where replicated virtual machines are stored, you can optionally configure storage classification mapping:
On the Quick Start page, click Map storage.
On the Storage tab, click Map storage classifications.
On the Map storage classifications tab, select classifications on the source and target VMM servers.
Save your settings.
