Hi,

If you know GID value of that replication, use the Managed Object Browser (MOB) of the vSphere Replication Management server to delete the replication. You can follow the remediation steps from following URL.

https://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-replication-65/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vsphere.replication-adm...

To find out your GID value for specific replication, you can check it from VRMS DB or hms.log file (located at /opt/vmware/hms/logs/) on the primary vSphere Replication Management (VRM) appliance (server). The following URL shows you the procedure to find out the GID value from VRMS DB.
