You must configure the upgraded components to establish a working Site Recovery Manager installation.

Site Recovery Manager 5.1 is a 64-bit application. If you use array-based replication, even if you performed an in-place upgrade of Site Recovery Manager, you must install 64-bit storage array adapters (SRA) that are compatible with Site Recovery Manager 5.1.

You upgraded vCenter Server and Site Recovery Manager.

If you use array-based replication, check the availability of an SRA for your type of storage by consulting the VMware Compatibility Guide for Site Recovery Manager at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=sra.

Download the SRA by going to https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads, selecting VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager > Download Product, then selecting Drivers & Tools > Storage Replication Adapters > Go to Downloads.

If you obtain an SRA from a different vendor site, verify that it has been certified for the Site Recovery Manager release you are using by checking the VMware Compatibility Guide for Site Recovery Manager at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=sra.
