Auditing a virtual failover client

After setting up a virtual failover client (VFC), audit it periodically to verify that it boots successfully. You can automate the audit process by enabling email verification reports or you can perform manual audits.

At least one virtual restore must have completed before the VFC can boot in audit mode. No virtual restores are performed while the VFC is in audit mode, but they resume when you take the VFC out of audit mode. A VFC running in audit mode is booted with no network interface. Auditing the VFC with the original client still online does not result in network conflicts or impact the original client in any way. However, applications on the VFC requiring network access are not fully functional in audit mode.
