    D: is correct

    Install the Client Plug-in
    Install the client plug-in on a computer that will be used to manage Data Recovery. You must install the client
    before you can manage VMware Data Recovery.
    Prerequisites
    Before you can install the Data Recovery plug-in, you must have vCenter Server running in your environment,
    and you must install the vSphere Client, which you can download from any vCenter Server. The Data Recovery
    plug-in connects to the backup appliance using port 22024. If there is a firewall between the client and the
    backup appliance, port 22024 must be open before Data Recovery can be managed with the vSphere Client.
    The client plug-in is only approved for managing backup appliances of the same version. Ensure you have the
    correct version of the plug-in for the appliance you are managing.
    Procedure
    1 Insert the Data Recovery installation CD.
    The VMware Data Recovery Installer window appears.
    2 Click Data Recovery Client Plug-In.
    3 Follow the prompts of the installation wizard.
    4 Start the vSphere Client, and log in to a vCenter Server.
    5 Select Plugins > Manage Plugins and make sure that the Data Recovery plug-in is enabled.
    You can now use the client plug-in to manage Data Recovery. If the Data Recovery is not registered in the
    vSphere Client, restart the client.
