SRM 5 Array anager Enable Error "SRA command 'discoverDevices' didn't return a response"

I upgraded SRM 4.1 to 5.0 without issues. I was able to PAIR the two sites successfully..  Have two CX4s arrays with MirrorView.

I did install the following for Storage Array Management:

- Solution Enabler 7.301 32 bits.

- Navisphere CLI 32 bits .  Tried it with { Do not create security file AND Create security file} , default  Low level for Certificate checking}

- EMC_VNX_SRA_v5.0.1

- EMC_Mirrorview_Enabler_for_VNX_SRA_v5.0.2

When I tried to add storage array, the only choice under  “SRA type “ was VNX . I added the protected CX4 Array under the first Protected Site supplying "SPA IP" address on the Management IP/Hostname and "SPB IP" address on the secondary Managmenet IP/Hostname .

When I clicked on enable, I got the following errors. “SRA command 'discoverDevices' didn't return a response”

Q1: The whole setup used to work fine in 4.1 , and there is no network restrictions between vCenter|SRM|CX4s servers.

What may be the issue here.?

Q2: Also to import the old configurations from SEM 4.1, the guides provides command to run after the Array Replication is configured correctly.

On C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Site Recovery Manager\bin

Srm-migration.exe –cmd importConfig –cfg ..\config\vmware-dr.xml –lcl-usr administrator –rem-usr administrator

Do I need to do anything else..?
