After you connect the Site Recovery Manager Server instances, you must establish a connection from the Site Recovery Manager interface in the vSphere Web Client to the remote Site Recovery Manager Server.

You require a client connection to the remote Site Recovery Manager Server to perform operations that affect both sites, such as configuring inventory mappings and creating protection groups. If you do not establish the client connection, Site Recovery Manager prompts you to log in to the remote site when you attempt operations that affect both sites.


You connected the Site Recovery Manager Server instances on the protected and recovery sites.


  1. Connect to the vSphere Client on one of the sites, and select Site Recovery > Open Site Recovery.
  2. On the Site Recovery home tab, select a site pair, and click View Details.
  3. Enter the vCenter Single Sign-On user name and password for the remote site, and click Log in.
