The "Nvram" file is missing on the replica destination storage.


If the specified *.nvram file is missing on the target storage, copy it manually from the source storage to the replica folder on the target datastore, and re-run the job. If the file already exists on the target side, perform the Delete from disk operation for the problem machine.
