Replication Recovery Failing with Error: Unable to reconfigure the recovered virtual machine 'xxxxxxxxx'.

Hi guys,

I messed up a VM, and trying to recover it from Site Recovery. But when I try to recover the VM, I get the following error on Site Recovery: Unable to reconfigure the recovered virtual machine 'xxxxxxxxx'.

and on vcenter I get the following error: Unable to write VMX file: /vmfs/volumes/c536b434-466de8ce-0000-000000000000/xxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxx.vmx. An error occurred while writing dictionary file "/vmfs/volumes/c536b434-466de8ce-0000-000000000000/xxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxx.vmx": 16 (Device or resource busy).

The backups are going to windows server share and I tried changing all the permissions set to everyone with full permission but I get the same error still. I'm running latest versions.

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you.

Still having issues if anyone has any recommendations for me. I just deleted all the replication jobs and their files and re-did one vm and it gives the same error right away.
