You perform several tasks to upgrade Site Recovery Manager.

About this task

Because of update release schedules, upgrading to certain Site Recovery Manager 6.0.x update releases is not supported for all 5.5.x and 5.8.x releases. For information about supported upgrade paths, see Solution Upgrade Path > VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager in the VMware Product Interoperability Matrixes at http://partnerweb.vmware.com/comp_guide2/sim/interop_matrix.php? before you upgrade.

Important:

Upgrading from Site Recovery Manager 5.0.x and 5.1.x to Site Recovery Manager 6.0 is not supported. Upgrade Site Recovery Manager 5.0.x and 5.1.x to a Site Recovery Manager 5.5.x or 5.8.x release before you upgrade to Site Recovery Manager 6.0.

You must perform the upgrade tasks in order. Complete all of the upgrade tasks on the protected site first, then complete the tasks on the recovery site.
