If you already deployed SRM (Site Recovery Manager) and decided to use vSphere Replication as your replication technology, you definitely deployed VRS (vSphere Replication Servers).

You deployed them, protected the VM’s, replication is working fine, but eventually you might want to connect to your VRS console, probably to accomplish with one of the best practices ever, to change the default password on every system/device.

Password: vmware

Change it NOW !!!
