Active Directory Certificate Services and VMware Site Recovery Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have any experience with using VMware's SRM to failover an Enterprise CA to a new VMware host at a different site for the purposes of disaster recovery?

    A customer I am working with is keen to virtualise their entire Windows estate. While I have suggested running two Enterprise CAs, one in each data centre, the customer is unconvinced of the need for the second CA and wants SRM to manage availability.

    I don't have much experience with VMware and its associated technologies and am concerned about the risk of data corruption, particularly to the CA database, when SRM is involved.

    Has anyone used this approach to provide availability for an Enterprise CA? Would it even be viewed as a supported configuration by Microsoft?
