Storage Replication Adapter: How to configure SRA in a SRM Shared Recovery Site

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Storage Replication Adapter (SRA) 9.12
  • ONTAP Tools for VMware vSphere (OTV) 9.12
  • VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM)
  • VMware Cloud Foundation Mode (VCF)


A SRM Shared Recovery Site Configuration consists of  multiple SRM instances connecting to the same vCenter instance.

In a SRM Shared Recovery Site Configuration:

  • Each SRM server needs to have a dedicated SRA instance (1:1 relationship between SRM and SRA)

  • You can accomplish this by configuring OTV in VCF mode to act as a dedicated SRA instance for each SRM server
  • You can also have a non-SRA enabled OTV appliance deployed that is registered with vCenter and used for non-SRA tasks such as datastore provisioning
