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

If you use array-based replication, you must check that your storage replication adapters (SRAs) are compatible with this version of Site Recovery Manager. Depending on the type of storage that you use, you might need to reinstall the SRAs.

If you use vSphere Replication and you upgraded vSphere Replication to the correct version, no additional configuration is required other than verifying your connections, protection groups, and recovery plans.

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.
