Last Modified: 2014-02-16
I have installed Vmware replication Appliance in 2 different Vcenter servers, VRAs are powered on.
I need to replicate one Virtual Machine from vCenter1 to vCenter2…
I would like to know where can I do that. I opened up Vmware Web Client but cannot see anything that says Replication..
Do I need to register VRA? if so , how can I do that?

Thank you

Yes an appliance must be registered with a vcenter server at each site.

Here is a link to installing replication.

Does the appliance show up in the Home tab?

If so then according to VMware it is registered with vcenter.

If not then it sounds like something went wrong on the install of the ova.
