The easy to follow examples and screenshots make it easy to understand the new 5. An out of the box, hands-on admin guide, SRM5. Great guidebook! The book is a bit dated, as vSphere 5. I bought both versions of this book--the paperback hardcopy and the Kindle book. I had no trouble with it as a US English speaker, but I think people who read English as a second language would find some of the text more challenging to understand.
The content gets five stars. The extra bulk for screen shots of deploying every SRA, which are very similar to each other, gets four stars. I gave it five anyway because on balance, this is a very useful book for those learning about, deploying, or managing vCenter SRM.
Mike Laverick has provided a well written and organized book. To some the organization and presentation of this book may seem unconventional. Chapters 1 plus one of 2 -6 make this book worthwhile to anyone installing a VMware solution with a SAN. Mike walks the reader through the entire installation and configuration process with plenty of screenshots and real world examples.
It is easy to follow along as he builds out a SRM solution. As the solution is built out, it covers advanced topics like customizations, scripting, and complex configurations. Billy Carter Great introduction By M. Chandler on Mar 13, This book is a great resource for those of us with little or no previous exposure to SRM. The combination of details and overview make it helpful for not only getting familiar with the concepts but also seeing how it would fit into an existing or new environment.
I especially liked the storage specific sections tailored to several of the different options available. This makes for something of a customized book where you can read or ignore the sections that apply to your own specific scenario s while still having the general information available.
Having some scripting suggestions, common errors, AND Monty Python references makes for a great book, definitely recommended. Full of information, but not for beginners By Kyle on May 26, Excellent manual, definitely one to keep on your shelf. If you do have some exposure you should be fine to catch on to most of the items in this book with a little help from google.
Mike does an excellent job explaining new features, how they compare to past versions, and limitations as well. Great book overall! The book is broken into 16 chapters. A couple of things that I really like are: how the author provided a link to "Links and Other Useful Items from the SRM Book" - it breaks down all of the hyperlinks that are in book into one place. The other part that I really like is how the author used locations in the US to help grasp the scenarios he was referencing.
Thanks for making a great book! Mike has a great way of writing in a casual tone yet conveys all of his experience with the solution. The book is straight forward and organized well. It has detailed solution examples for several different combinations of arrays and 3rd party technologies along with the core VMware technologies. If you only have one choice of a book or a manual or anything else on SRM you should make this book your choice.
The Author has presented, in an easy to understand manner, the knowledge required to implement Site Recovery Manager without losing you job!

Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0
Personally, I always recommend dedicated Windows instances for the SRM role, and in these days of Microsoft licensing allowing multiple instances of Enterprise and Datacenter Editions on the same hypervisor, the cost savings are not as great as they once were. When connecting the sites together you always log in to the Protected Site and connect it to the Recovery Site. This starting order dictates the relationship between the two SRM servers. If I had logged in to the New Jersey site directly it would be earmarked as local instead.
