If your infrastructure uses more than one vSphere Replication server, you must update all of the vSphere Replication servers to the same update release version as the vSphere Replication appliance.


  • You installed vSphere Replication 5.5.x or upgraded vSphere Replication and the additional vSphere Replication servers to version 5.5.x by using the downloadable ISO file. If you are running an older version of vSphere Replication, you must upgrade the vSphere Replication appliance and the additional vSphere Replication servers to version 5.5.x before you can update to a later 5.5.x update release.

  • You updated vCenter Server, the vSphere Client, Site Recovery Manager, and the Site Recovery Manager client to the corresponding 5.5.x update release.


  1. In a Web browser, connect to the VAMI of the vSphere Replication server to update.

    The URL for the VAMI of the vSphere Replication server is https://vr-server-address:5480.

  2. Type the root user name and password for the vSphere Replication server appliance.
  3. Click the Update tab.
  4. Click Check Updates.

    By default, the VAMI shows the most recently available version. If you want to update to an older update release when the next update release is already available, you must manually change the update URL:

    1. Click Settings.
    2. Select Use Specified Repository and paste the update URL into the Repository URL text box.

      See the release notes of the update release for the exact URL.

    3. Click Save Settings.
    4. Click Status.
    5. Click Check Updates.

      The update checker shows that a new version is available.

  5. Click Install Updates and click OK.
  6. When the update finishes, select the System tab, and click Reboot.
  7. Repeat the procedure to update any other vSphere Replication server instances.
