Zerto Virtual Replication uses an SQL Server to manage data for scalable business continuity software solutions. The default during installation is the embedded SQL Server database.
When using the embedded SQL Server database, Zerto Virtual Replication is limited with the number of resources that can be protected. It’s is highly recommended to move to external databases for Productions Environments.
If you are planning to migrate soon please take in consideration this article
- Zerto Virtual Replication version Version 6.5 Update 3 Build 065304060

- After following the steps described in the Migrate ZVR Database to MS SQL server guide http://s3.amazonaws.com/zertodownload_docs/Latest/Migrating%20the%20Zerto%20Virtual%20Replication%20Database%20to%20Microsoft%20SQL%20Server.pdf I selected “CONVERT”and the following error was displayed:
Root cause and solution (Zerto Support Response)
Installation package for Dalmore u3p1 was just released. The migration tool for v6.5U3P1 has not been released yet.
