  • 1.  No Vmware Replication icon

    Posted Jul 24, 2017 09:13 PM


    We have recently downloaded and installed vCenter and vSphere Replication for an evaluation period on one of our two ESXI host.

    I believe that I was successfully able to download and install VRA; however, I do not see an icon for vSphere Replication in vCenter.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the issue could be?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks, but I'm not sure if that's the issue that I'm having.  :smileywink:

    1. I am able to telnet to VRMS_IP on port 5480 using the command "curl -v telnet://VRMS_IP:5480"

    2. I can download the plugin manually by going to https://VRMS_IP:5480/client/

    3. https://VRMS_IP:5480/ and https://VRMS_IP:8043/ both have the same certificate thumbprint signature.

    The only thing that I see in  "/etc/vmware/vsphere-client/vc-packages/vsphere-client-serenity" is "" but, I'm not %100 percent sure if that's the folder that the plugins are downloaded to.

    Thanks again,

    what is the vcenter version and vsphere replication which you are using in the environment.

    have you verified the compatibility?

    VSphere Replication Build 3849281

    VCenter VCenter Version 6.5.0 Build 4944578

    I have not checked to see if they were compatible since I recently downloaded them for an evaluation period and assumed they were the latest versions and thus compatible.  I'm checking the link you posted now
