After you register a Replicator Service instance, replace the Cloud Service certificate, or upgrade VMware Cloud Director Availability in the local site, go to each paired remote site and re-pair each remote site with the local site.

Depending on the version of VMware Cloud Director Availability in the cloud sites, use the appropriate re-pairing process:


  1. Log in to the management interface of the Cloud Replication Management Appliance.
    1. In a Web browser, go to https://Appliance-IP-Address/ui/admin.
    2. Select Appliance login or SSO login and enter the root or the single sign-on user credentials.
    3. Click Login.
  2. In the left pane, click Sites.
  3. On the Cloud sites page, click Repair.
  4. In the Update Pairing window, configure the connection to the cloud site and click Update.
    Option Description
    Service Endpoint Verify that the displayed IP address and port of the Cloud Tunnel Appliance in the remote site is correct.
    Description Optionally provide a description for the cloud site pair.
  5. To complete the re-pair process, verify the thumbprint and accept the remote Cloud Service SSL certificate.
    The trust between the two sites is successfully reestablished.
  6. On the Cloud sites page, verify that the site is listed as Repaired.


You reestablished the cloud sites trust and can configure new incoming and outgoing replications between the sites.

What to do next

You can configure new replications, after modifying the default replication policy for both the source and for the destination organization to allow replications. Alternatively, a custom replication policy that is assigned to the source and to the destination organizations must allow replications. For information about the replication policy, see Configuring Replication Policies in VMware Cloud Director Availability User Guide.
