Is there a way to prevent accidental launch of replicated virtual machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am in an environment that houses 3 DC's.

    Two of the DC's are virtualized. Those 2 virtual DC's reside on two separate physical servers and cross replicate to provide redundancy in the case of a massive failure of one physical server.

    On my laptop I can view the Hyper-v Hosts and monitor the replication health etc. However it just occurred to me that I could potentially start a replicated DC while the primary copy of that same DC is already running. This could only lead to bad things happening in AD.

    Is there some way to put a check on the ability of starting a replicated virtual machine? Password protection or some other mechanism to make one step back and ask "Do you really want to do this?!?"
