After you deploy additional vSphere Replication servers, you must register these servers with the vSphere Replication appliance to enable them as traffic handlers at the recovery site.

Note: You can register additional vSphere Replication servers that run within the same vSphere environment.


  • Verify that the vSphere Replication appliance is deployed and configured.
  • Verify that an additional vSphere Replication Server is deployed.

  4. On the Site Pair tab, select Configure > Replication Servers.
  5. Click the Register icon.
  6. From the list, select a virtual machine that is a working vSphere Replication server and click Select.


The newly registered vSphere Replication server appears in the list of vSphere Replication servers.
