      I have vSphere Replication 8.1 installed with vSphere 6.7 doing replications from one ESXi 6.7 host to another (managed by the same vCenter 6.7 server).


      Replications are working fine and without issues, but on the source host /var/log/vmkernel.log gets flooded with messages like this one:

      Hbr: 1198: File hbrtmp.1.9852 (groupID=GID-f777dbb7-9594-4b28-8671-1c9898d9496b) (offset=0) already exists on server and is identical

      I tried to stop all replication jobs, clean up all Files created by vSphere Replication, and re-create jobs, but this did not help.


      Does anyone know whether and how it is possible to prevent these messages from appearing?
