Known troubleshooting information can help you diagnose and correct problems during the installation and configuration of Site Recovery Manager.

You might encounter problems restoring a SQL database on a 32-bit target virtual machine when you upgrade or migrate Site Recovery Manager.

Site Recovery Manager depends on other services. If one of those services is not running, the Site Recovery Manager Server does not start.

Connecting to the Site Recovery Manager interface in the vSphere Client fails.

When you deploy the vSphere Replication appliance, you get an error about unavailable features.

When you attempt to deploy OVF for the vSphere Replication appliance, an OVF package error might occur.

If problems occur when you use the Site Recovery Manager interface to deploy a vSphere Replication appliance or a vSphere Replication server, you can deploy the OVF manually.

Replications fail because vSphere Replication cannot connect to the hosts.

You cannot resolve a connection error between the vSphere Replication appliance and SQL Server.

vSphere Replication creates temporary tables in the vSphere Replication database. If you use a DB2 database, the database might require additional configuration.

Pairing vSphere Replication appliances might result in a 404 error message.

If the address of vCenter Server is not set to a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or to a literal address, the vSphere Replication service can stop unexpectedly or fail to start after a reboot.

If you deploy an additional vSphere Replication server, you might need to increase the memory of the vSphere Replication server if that server manages large numbers of virtual machines.

If you delete the vSphere Replication appliance virtual machine, the virtual appliance management interface (VAMI) is not available to delete the appliance extension that still exists in vCenter Server.

When you upload a custom certificate to the vSphere Replication appliance, you see a warning even if the certificate is valid.

The status of the vSphere Replication appliance shows as Disconnected if you are running the Site Recovery Manager client plug-in on Windows XP SP2 x64.

vSphere Replication server registration might take a long time depending on the number of hosts in the vCenter Server inventory.

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