If your infrastructure uses more than one vSphere Replication server, you must upgrade all of the vSphere Replication servers that you used with Site Recovery Manager 5.0.

The process to upgrade vSphere Replication servers is a two-step process. To upgrade vSphere Replication servers, you must first perform an intermediate upgrade. From the intermediate upgrade version of the vSphere Replication server, you upgrade to the vSphere Replication 5.1 server.

Verify that you upgraded the vSphere Replication management server from Site Recovery Manager 5.0 to the combined vSphere Replication 5.1 appliance.

1

In a Web browser, connect to the VAMI of the vSphere Replication server to upgrade.

The URL for the VAMI of the vSphere Replication server is https://vr-server-address:5480.

2

Type the root user name and password for the vSphere Replication server appliance.

3

Click the Update tab.

Click Check Updates.

Appliance version 1.0.999 appears under Available Updates.

5

Click Install Updates and click OK.

After the upgrade finishes, click the System tab and click Reboot.

When the vSphere Replication server has rebooted, log into the VAMI of the vSphere Replication server again.

Click the Update tab.

Click Check Updates.

By default, the VAMI shows the most recently available version. If you want to upgrade to an update release of an older version when the next major release is already available, you must manually change the upgrade URL:
