Site Recovery Manager 5.8 requires vSphere Replication 5.8. The Site Recovery Manager installer stops if it detects an incompatible version of vSphere Replication.

Problem

If you install an incompatible version of vSphere Replication after you installed Site Recovery Manager 5.8, the verification of the vSphere Replication version is not performed and vSphere Web Client stops working.

Cause

Running incompatible versions of Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication causes vSphere Web Client to stop working. If the Site Recovery Manager installer detects an incompatible version of vSphere Replication or if you installed an incompatible version of vSphere Replication after you installed Site Recovery Manager 5.8, you must either upgrade vSphere Replication or unregister it from vCenter Server.

Results

If you cannot upgrade vSphere Replication to the correct version, unregister vSphere Replication from vCenter Server. For information about how to unregister vSphere Replication from vCenter Server, see Uninstall vSphere Replication and Unregister vSphere Replication from vCenter Server if the Appliance Was Deleted in vSphere Replication Administration.
