Site Recovery - SSL certificates replacement completed Draas-SSLCertificateRenew-completed VMware Site Recovery has completed replacement of SSL certificates of SRM and VR appliances. Customer action is required on the remote (on-premises) DR site to recover the normal state of the VR pairing.
Site Recovery - Scheduled SSL certificates replacement Draas-SSLCertificateRenew This is a heads up notification for VSR maintenance activity - replacement of SRM and VR appliances SSL certificates. It is sent at least 7 days before the start of the maintenance. Usually such maintenance takes less than 30min, and the visible impact is the SRM and VR processes are restarted (usually less than 2mins). After the maintenance, user action is required on the remote (on-premises) DR site to recover the normal state of the VR pairing. (Existing replications are not affected, so the customer workfloads remain protected.)

If for some reason the maintenance can't be executed at the scheduled time, Draas-SSLCertificateRenew-canceled notification is sent, which is normally followed up and new maintenance is scheduled.

SSL certificates of SRM and VR appliances are due to expire and VMware Site Recovery has scheduled replacement of these certificates.

Normally the upgrade completes for ~ 30min, but the maintenance windows is booked for 4h to allow time for troubleshooting / fixing if there are issues. The VSR upgrade should not overlap with the SDDC upgrade window, and it doesn't impact non VSR related functionality in the SDDC. Actual visible impact for the user is due to restart of SRM and VR which is in less than 2mins. Customer action is required prior maintenance - customer needs to ensure that their SRM recovery plans are in a state which allows upgrade. If this is not true at the time of the maintenance, the maintenance is re-scheduled or cancelled. Customer also needs to make sure that their on-prem SRM/VR version is upgraded to compatiable one with the cloud SRM/VR version to be deployed.
