I have successfully installed and configured the vsphere replication 6.5.0 on VCSA 6.5. But after logout and login on the vcenter vsphere replication plugin icon missing. I have tried the given below instruction but no luck till now.
service-control –-stop vsphere-client
rm -rf /usr/lib/vmware-vsphere-client/server/work/* Windows vCenter Server: C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\WebClient\server\work
rm -rf /storage/vsphere-client/SerenityDB/serenity/* Windows vCenter Server: C:\programdata\vmware\vCenterServer\data\vSphere Web Client\SerenityDB\serenity
cd /usr/lib/vmware-vsphere-client/server/pickup mv vr-service-6.5.0.xxxxx.jar vr-service-6.5.0.xxxxx.jar.bak Windows vCenter Server: C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vsphere-client\server\pickup\
You have missed the re-register part. Open the VAMI Page and register the VR appliance back to the vCenter server by clicking Save and Restart the service.
You have mentioned that vcenter is VCSA and mentioned steps are for windows server vcenter not for VCSA.
Okay, anyways - try to restart all the vcenter services from shell and check... If not,
Re-register the vCenter server from vSphere Replication VAMI?
Find the step-by-step configuration from this link and go to stage2, How to Deploy, Install and Configure vSphere Replication 6.5.1 – HyperVMwareCloud
If issue persists after re-register as mentioned above, remove the existing extension and re-register again:
