Hi,

OK so your problem is browser cache. Please close all your browser instances and open firefox clean all browser cache and open VR VAMI UI and navigate to Configuration tab.

PS: Do NOT use IE

Thanks,

Hi,

Unfortunately VR is per VC after you move from Windows to Appliance based VC this means that Appliance VC is already a new instance (different VC). With other words your VR already lost it's OVF environment (Windows VC) and you have to redeploy it and do the same steps (register in VC).

Thanks,

Hi,

As of vSphere Replication 6.0 you are required to configure the solution to work with the Platform Service Controller (PSC) the vCenter is working with.

In order to do that :

- Navigate to the the https://VR_appliance_IP:5480

- Login with credentials you have provided during deployment process of the appliance

- Go to VR -> Configuration tab

- Provide the address of PSC within the Lookup service address box

- Provide the administrative credentials for your SSO

- Click "Save and Restart Service" button
