In a shared recovery site configuration, you can install multiple Site Recovery Manager Server instances that all extend the same vCenter Server instance on the shared recovery site.

The Site Recovery Manager Server instances that you install on a shared recovery site each correspond to a Site Recovery Manager Server on a protected site.

You created one or more protected sites, each with a Site Recovery Manager Server instance for which you configured a unique Site Recovery Manager plug-in ID. Click Site Recovery > Sites in the vSphere Web Client, select a site and click Summary to check the Site Recovery Manager plug-in ID of the Site Recovery Manager instance to which you are connecting this instance.

Download the Site Recovery Manager installation file to a folder on the Site Recovery Manager Server host.
