You use the vSphere Client to connect to Site Recovery Manager.

Site Recovery Manager does not require that you connect to a specific Site Recovery Manager site in a Site Recovery Manager deployment. You can change the protected and recovery sites by connecting to vCenter Server at either site.

Verify that you installed Site Recovery Manager Server instances at the protected and recovery sites.

Verify that you installed the Site Recovery Manager client plug-in in the vSphere Client.

Verify that you have a user account that is paired with a role that has the necessary permissions to connect to Site Recovery Manager.


Open a vSphere Client and connect to vCenter Server on either the protected site or the recovery site.


On the vSphere Client Home page, click the Site Recovery icon.
