VMWare Replication Manager

I know someone out there has run into this...  Just did a fresh install of vCenter 5.5.  Everything seemed to have gone smoothly.  All hosts are ESX 5.5.  Licensing is Ess. Plus.  For the life of me, I cannot see the replication tab in the Web Client.  I was even able to install the replication appliances with no problem.  Someone tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thanks to all in advance!

Do you see All vSphere replication Actions>Configure replication when you right-click a machine?

Don't you see a vSphere replication icon on the home page of the web client?

No to both questions.  Thought it might have something to do with IE so I tried again with FF.  Still no glory.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I am on that guy's blog now and have asked him what he thinks.  No response yet.

Can you go in the console of the vSphere Replication Appliance and see if it is working fine? You need to see a blue screen with the addresses that the VR appliance can be accessed with.
You need to logout and log back in for the plug-in to work sometimes in web client.

Can you restart webclient services once if you don't have a problem?

Please look for the vSphere Web Client logs vsphere_client_virgo.log and see if you see anything abnormal.

Where would I find the vSphere Web Client logs?  The log browser shows a Virgo Server log.  It looks pretty clean.

To answer the other questions, yes, the console looks fine.  I can log into the replication appliance.  And I have restarted the vCenter server several times.

Called VMware support.  Because of IE11 I was not seeing all of the configuration options.  Used FF and all went well.
