When the seeding function is enabled in the Replication job, a seeding operation is initiated when there is no Replica associated with the VM being replicated. A seeding operation will occur under the following circumstances:
- A VM is added to the replication job, and no existing replica is mapped to that VM.
- The Replica, for a previously successfully replicated VM, has been deleted from disk.
- The underlying Reference ID used by the virtual environment to track the VM has changed.
If you cannot resolve the seeding issue, try to restore from the backup and then map the job to the restored VM: How to Manually Seed a Replica.
