We have been working a lot with different Azure Site Recovery (ASR) cases lately. I will share some basic steps what you need to do. In our demo case we are using NetApp.
First of all, I assume that you already have VMM configured and up and running. We will need at least one VM for working as a SMI-S provider.
Provider agent installation is quite easy.
Next we will check that agent is running with following command:
smis cimserver status
Then we need to add CIM server user which is the local administrator account of you server
cimuser -a -u administrator -w “your password”
Next we add our storage system with the following command (on demo purposes we used http)
smis add hvdemo2.nwtraders.local smis smis123#
You can check your current configuration via command
Next we move on to VMM side and configure provider:
type name of you SMI-S server
Create RunAs account for your SMI-S server
and that´s it. Now you are connected to your provider.
