All VCS supported replication agents which are listed on SORT are supported inside the guest (virtual to virtual clustering). The in-guest support matrix for replication agent is the same as the VCS support matrix. If VCS is supported inside a guest on a virtualization platform, then the replication agent is also supported.
Supported Linux virtualization technologies:
Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES)
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV)
Oracle Virtual Machine (OVM)
Pre-requisite for replication agent support in virtual environments:
Data disks must be made visible to the guest as pass-through devices, such as VMware to RDM, LDOM to Physical Disk or Disk Lun without slice option.
Firedrill functionality is not supported in virtual environments for the following replication agents:
Only Firedrill functionality is affected: these replication agents can be used to manage replication inside guests.
