I’ve been working with VMware Site Recover Manager (SRM) sparsely over the past few years and had thought I’ve seen most of the error messages but came across one today that I had not seen before so I thought it would be worth while to write a quite post for it.
Logging into the SRM section of a vSphere Web Client shows all of the Protection Groups listed as Not Configured:
Navigating into the list of Virtual Machines show the Protection Status as Replication Error:
One of the possible causes of this status being displayed in SRM is if the VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager service on the target site is not started. Starting the service will correct the issue.
