Attach each vSphere Replication Server to your vSphere Replication Manager and vCenter Server.

Procedure

  1. Configure your vSphere Replication Server.

    Standard Command

    Command Using Registry

    # vcav hbr configure \
    --hbr-address=$HBR_ADDRESS \
    --vsphere-address=$VSPHERE01_ADDRESS \
    --vsphere-user=$SSO_USER \
    --vsphere-password-file=~/.ssh/.sso \
    --vcd-address=$VCD_ADDRESS \
    --vcd-user=$VCD_USER \
    --vcd-password-file=~/.ssh/.vcd
    # vcav hbr configure \
    --hbr-address=$HBR_ADDRESS \
    --vsphere=vsphere-01-name \
    --vcd=vcd-01-name

    The system returns an OK message, after the process finishes.

    Important:

    Repeat this step for every vSphere Replication Server in your environment.

  2. Verify that the hbr service starts successfully.

    Standard Command

    Command Using Registry

    # vcav hbr wait-for-extension \
    --hbr-address=$HBR_ADDRESS \
    --vsphere-address=$VSPHERE01_ADDRESS \
    --vsphere-user=$SSO_USER \
    --vsphere-password-file=~/.ssh/.sso \
    --vcd-address=$VCD_ADDRESS \
    --vcd-user=$VCD_USER \
    --vcd-password-file=~/.ssh/.vcd
    # vcav hbr wait-for-extension \
    --hbr-address=$HBR_ADDRESS \
    --vsphere=vsphere-01-name \
    --vcd=vcd-01-name

    If the hbr service starts successfully, the system displays an ОК message.

    If the system returns an error, or there is no output in 5 minutes, check the /var/log/vmware/hbrsrv.log file for errors.
