Site Recovery Manager in a box

It is diffucult to test Site Recovery Manager when limited hardware is available. To test SRM you need at least two ESX boxes, 2 VirtualCenter servers, two SAN’s replicating and at least a virtual machine to test the recovery on.

However, with just one laptop you could setup your own lab to test SRM. See how it is done with evaluation software here:
