You use the vSphere Client to connect to Site Recovery Manager.

About this task

Site Recovery Manager does not require that you connect to a specific Site Recovery Manager site in a Site Recovery Manager deployment. You can change the protected and recovery sites by connecting to vCenter Server at either site.


  • Verify that you installed Site Recovery Manager Server instances at the protected and recovery sites.

  • Verify that you installed the Site Recovery Manager client plug-in in the vSphere Client.

  • Verify that you have a user account that is paired with a role that has the necessary permissions to connect to Site Recovery Manager.


  1. Open a vSphere Client and connect to vCenter Server on either the protected site or the recovery site.
  2. On the vSphere Client Home page, click the Site Recovery icon.
