To upgrade Site Recovery Manager, you must perform several tasks in order. You must complete all the upgrade tasks on the protected site first, then complete the tasks on the recovery site.

  • During upgrade, SRM is unavailable until you upgrade SRM and VR to the latest version 8.1.2.

  • You can no longer upgrade your VR and SRM VMs directly. To move SRM environments to the latest version, you must migrate them.
