VCDA – The destination replication policy does not allow incoming replications to be configured

VMware Cloud Director Availability 4.0.1 On-Premises Appliance  (Client side vCenter)

Initial Setup – The destination replication policy ‘Default Policy’ at site ‘VCDA-Site1’ does not allow incoming replications to be configured.

 

1. Login to the provider VCDA /ui/portal/policies/
The Default Policy assigned to org has both incoming and outgoing replicate Forbidden

2. Create a new Policy which defaults to allowing incoming and outgoing replicate. I changed the Minimum allowed RPO to 2 hours.

3. Click Assign on the new policy and choose the vCD org.

Back on the On-Premises setup wizard /ui/portal/initial-config/ click Finish
