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.

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.
