In order to replicate with VVR, it must be installed on both machines.

Would strongly recommend you read the following documents to get a better understanding of how VVR works and what is required:
(links below are for VVR 5.1 on Solaris, if using a different version see - html versions are also available here)

VVR 5.1 (Solaris) Administrator's Guide:

VVR 5.1 (Solaris) Planning and Tuning Guide:

If you still have questions after going through the above, then you can post more specific questions to follow up.

Do you have VVR downloaded ?If you use 5.0xx , you will need license for VxVM/VVR

If both the nodes are on same network. Then take care of bandwidth for data replication. Unstable network health cause replication disconnection.
