You can use the vSphere Replication virtual appliance management interface (VAMI) to generate a support bundle for system monitoring and troubleshooting. A VMware support engineer might request the bundle during a support call.

To access and download the vSphere Replication logs, you need access to the vSphere Replication VAMI. vSphere Replication rotates its logs when the log file reaches 50 MB and keeps at most 12 compressed log files. For more options on how to collect automatically vSphere Replication logs, see

The support bundle for vSphere Replication version 8.1.1 does not contain the vCloud Tunneling Agent log files. You can manually collect the vCloud Tunneling Agent log files. For more information about the location of log files, see Tenant Log File Locations.


  • Verify that the vSphere Replication appliance is powered on.

  • Verify that you have administrator privileges to configure the vSphere Replication appliance.
