If you change the SSL certificate of vCenter Server, you cannot access vSphere Replication.


vSphere Replication uses a certificate-based authentication to connect to vCenter Server. If you change the vCenter Server certificate, vSphere Replication is inaccessible.


The vSphere Replication database contains the old vCenter Server certificate.


  1. Log into the VRMS Appliance Management Interface of the vSphere Replication appliance and click Summary > Reconfigure.
  2. Follow all prompts of the reconfiguration wizard without changing any configuration information.
    vSphere Replication restarts with the new vCenter Server certificate.
