Can't log into the vsphere replication appliance VAMI

I'm running SRM 8.2 and I am preparing to access the vSphere Replication Management Interface to configure the appliance and register the vSphere Replication service with vCenter Server and vSphere Single Sign-On.

When I try to log into the vSphere Replication VAMI and it won't connect.

I get error messages - This site can't be reached.

The console window can be opened - I can login as root and I did an ifconfig -a and the vm shows its IP address is configured correctly. Netmask is good as well.

I've rebooted the vm no change.

I can not find any info online as to how to troubleshoot the vami service from the command line.

Anyone know what to do?

1. Please check if you can telnet to VR IP on port 5480. Try a different browser/system to connect to VR VAMI

2. Login to VR VM and check the status of VAMI service on VR appliance:

systemctl status vami-lighttp.service

systemctl status vami-sfcb.service

If not running, you can start them by running 'systemctl start' command for both of these services. Stop and and start services is also worth a try if the services are already running

3. Run these commands to enable the service and reboot the VR appliance:

systemctl enable vami-lighttp.service

systemctl enable vami-sfcb.service

Hope that helps
