Running vSphere 4.1 up1 with SRM 4.1.1 with the latest simulator. Using NFS protocol. Have a volume replicating with snapmirror and a VM inside the VMFS volume at the protected site. All good. However, when I try to setup the SRA it's failing with "Failed to connect to management system address while executing discoverArrays command. Here is a part of the log file with the error: By the way the firewall on the SRM server where the SRA is installed is OFF.

Just want to add some notes here that may help some other in the future:
I ran into this problem today, we have an SRM setup between a primary site filer and secondary site vfiler (across a WAN, separate networks). I made sure I had httpd options set correctly and I still couldn't connect.
The resolution was I had to add the secondary sites vcenter ip address to the options trusted.hosts of vfiler0, without this I couldn't connect and constantly got the error message "Failed to connect to management system address while executing discoverArrays command"
