For the new SRM 5.1 a new EqualLogic SRA is required (version 2.2) and it’s available both on EqualLogic site (in the support section) and VMware site (in the SRM download page). The upgrade procedure is simple and it’s described in the previous post. You have simple to run the installation. But there is now a new interesting option on how storage replication (note that are used asynchronous replication) are handled:

As usual the upgrade path is explained in the official guide, in this case in the SRM Install and Config guide (page 23). You have also to check the VMware Product Interoperability Matrixes to find how is compatible with other VMware components. Usually you need to upgrade secondary products, like SRM or View before upgrade the core part (vSphere). For for SRM there is also a special note: you have to upgrade versions of SRM earlier than 5.0 to SRM 5.0 or 5.0.1 before you upgrade to 5.1 or 5.0.1! Note that upgrading vCenter Server […]

One of the interesting feature of VMware SRM 5.0.x is the vSphere Replication (VR) technology that is a VM a replication engine (part of SRM 5.0 and that also requires ESXi 5.0 and later) to implement protecting and replicating virtual machines between sites without the need of storage array–based replication (that usually it’s costly and too much vendor dependent). It use different elements: VRA (vSphere Replication agent): included in ESXi starting from v5.0 VRMS (vSphere Replication Management Server): one virtual appliance (VA) for each site to handle the communication VRS (vSphere Replication Server): one virtual […]
