    Replication paused when a disk gets added or removed

    diegoazevedo Novice

      Hi all!

       

      I need to replicate a VM to a secondary DC. This VM is an actual virtual backup appliance, which by design, attaches / detaches disks from other VMs to itself for backing up data from those VMs. The issue with vSphere Replication is that the replication will pause and require manual intervention every time a replicated VM gets a disk added or removed.

       

      Is there any way around it? Any advance setting which will tell vSphere Replication to perhaps warn you about the disks but not break replication altogether?

       

      Using vSphere 5.5 U1 and vSphere Replication 5.5. Message generated on vCenter is: system has paused replication: Disk added to VM

       

      Thanks!
