Error in the SRM GUI:

vmware-dr.log shows messages similar to below:

SRM will successfully register with the vCenter during a reconfigure.


VMware Site Recovery Manager 8.x


SRM 8.8 uses a Service Account, which is a different from the previous versions solution user.


Remove the Service Account

Note: vCenter snapshots would be ideal. While this is a simple change, it is always helpful to take snapshots before making changes like this. If the wrong account is removed, we may cause additional problems.

  1. Connect to the vCenter server via Jxplorer
  2. Delete the SRM Service Account under "SolutionPrincipals" via Jxplorer
    • As an example, the solutionuser will look like this: h5-dr-sa-uuid 

  3. Reconfigure SRM through the VAMI on port 5480
