To use vSphere Replication between Region A and Region B, you must configure a connection between the two vSphere Replication appliances because each region is managed by a different vCenter Server instance.


  1. Log in to vCenter Server by using the vSphere Web Client.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local/vsphere-client.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name administrator@vsphere.local
      Password vsphere_admin_password
  2. Connect the two vSphere Replication instances.
    1. On the vSphere Web Client Home page, click Hosts and Clusters.
    2. In the Navigator, select the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local instance, click the Configure tab, and click Target Sites under vSphere Replication.
    3. Click the Connect to target site to configure replications icon.
    4. In the Connect to Target Site dialog box, select Connect to a remote site, enter the following settings, and click the Log In button.
      Setting Value
      PSC address of the remote site lax01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local
      User name svc-vr@rainpole.local
      Password svc-vr_password

      The Connect to Target site dialog box shows lax01m01vc01.lax01.rainpole.local selected.
    6. In the Connect to Target Site dialog box, click OK.
  3. On the Target Sites page, click Refresh and verify that the value under Status is Connected.
