You can read it through the blog or visit my youtube channel and watch video. The video is embedded below the post too.
Open Prism Central and got to Prism Central Settings –> Prism Central Management –> Disaster Recovery
Click on Protect Now — > Continue
In the next applet, you will see a list of clusters that are meeting PC DR requirements. From there pick up 3 backup clusters and click Proceed.
Depends on the PC size and networking speed, first synchronization may take a couple of minutes. You can watch the progress in Prism Central Console.
When initial data synchronization is done, you can see DR status in the same place where it was configured.
