"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I assume you are referring to VMware's own vSphere Replication here (VR).

I'm afraid vSphere Replication, and all new features are incorporated into the Web Client via the Web Client Plugins, VMware is no longer maintaining the vSphere Client (C#).

e.g. VDP, vRO, Big Data Extentions, NSX are all Web Client plugins.
