VCenter 5.1 to 5.5 U1 Custom Upgrade with SRM and Linked Mode (Part 6 SRM)

Vcenter is fully upgraded now we will upgrade SRM at the primary site.  This will break SRM until you get your secondary site upgraded as well.  So, please be aware of this.

1.  Login to your SRM server.

2. Launch the SRM installer.

SRM_1

3.  Accept EULA.SRM_2

4.  Select the install directory.SRM_3

5.  I would recommend installing vSphere replication whether you are currently using it or not.  Otherwise you have to re-run the installer to use it later.SRM_4

6.  Accept the certificate.SRM_5

7.  Enter your Vcenter information and the credentaisl SRM uses to connect.  Hit yes to update the plugin.SRM_6

8.  Generate a new certificate.SRM_7

9.  Enter your information for the certificate.

SRM_8

10.  Enter the information for the extension.SRM_9

11.  Enter your database credentials.  SRM_10

12.  Use existing database which will upgrade it.SRM_11

13.  Install SRMSRM_12

13.  Installation should complete.SRM_13

From here you need to update your SRA (if applicable) and your Replication servers.  Then, follow these exact same steps for Vcenter/SRM on your secondary site.  Las,t would be to relink your Vcenters

Replication is covered in the part 7.
