Issues finding RSM server on network.

I have inherited an ESXi environment this is minimally documented. I have been able to document location of the guest servers and the main hosts, but I have one remaining problem: I cannot identify which server is handling SRM. Some of the server are protected by SRM and this is causing me issues, as I need to expand some partitions, but can't because the servers are replicating using SRM. Os there a way to find the SRM on the network, either by looking at the host configuration or guest configuration?

Most of the time its installed on the vCenter Server

but you should be able to access via web client to manage it

Would I use a different tool to get at it?

No you would not use a different tool, all management of VMware vSphere is performed using the management server -  vCenter Server

Management of SRM is performed using Web Client connected to vCenter Server or earlier versions vSphere Client connected to vCenter Server.

So at present can you connect to vCenter Server ?

the vCenter server doesn't seem to have any objects connected? Very strange

Management of SRM is provided via vCenter Server, because SRM is registered with a vCenter Server at Site A, and SRM is registered at Site B.
