As of this evening, both Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication have been updated and the 5.1.1 release is now available. I strongly recommend this build as even though there is little in the way of new functionality, it is almost completely filled with things that make SRM and VR work better.
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5.1.1 | Build 1082082
VMware vSphere Replication 5.1.1 | Build 1079383
Some of the fixed issues, for example, are things like:
- All sorts of timeout problems ranging from multiple operation timeouts to reprotect timeouts to HBA rescan timeouts
- Custom vCenter https ports now work better with vSphere Replication
- Pairing SRM servers using custom certificates and VCVA now works
- Re-protect using vSphere Replication is more resilient
Two things in particular that I want to highlight though are really nice to see are listed below.
