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

vSphere Replication uses 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.
