About this task
Site Recovery Manager 5.5 is a 64-bit application. If you are upgrading from Site Recovery Manager 5.0.x and you use array-based replication, even if you performed an in-place upgrade of Site Recovery Manager, you must install 64-bit storage array adapters (SRA) that are compatible with Site Recovery Manager 5.5.
You upgraded vCenter Server and Site Recovery Manager.
If you use array-based replication, check the availability of an SRA for your type of storage by consulting the VMware Compatibility Guide for Site Recovery Manager at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=sra.
Download the SRA by going to https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads, selecting , then selecting .
If you obtain an SRA from a different vendor site, verify that it has been certified for the Site Recovery Manager release you are using by checking the VMware Compatibility Guide for Site Recovery Manager at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=sra.
- In the Site Recovery Manager client, select and click Configure Connection to pair the Site Recovery Manager Server instances.
- (Optional) If you use array-based replication, reinstall and reconfigure the SRA on the Site Recovery Manager Server hosts that you upgraded.
You must perform these tasks on both sites.
