System has paused replication: Disk added to VM

vsphere 6.7 with vsphere replicate

error : System has paused replication: Disk added to VM

To resolve the issue:
  1. Enable SSH on the host where the virtual machine is running.
    1. Using the VMware vSphere client, open the Configuration tab on the host.
    2. Click Properties in the Services section.
    3. Click SSH > Options.
    4. Click Start.
  2. SSH to the host using an SSH client like Putty.
  3. To get all the VMids, run the command:vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms or
    vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms | grep “vm name”
  4. Find the VMid of the VM with the configuration issue. Make a note of the VMid. For example, consider the VMid is 55.
  5. To get the replication state of the Virtual Machine, run the command:vim-cmd hbrsvc/vmreplica.getState 55
  6. To disable VMware replication on the virtual machine, run the command:vim-cmd hbrsvc/vmreplica.disable 55

    The output looks similar to:

    [[email protected]:~] vim-cmd hbrsvc/vmreplica.disable 55
    Disable VM Replication:

  7. To verify, run the getState command again:The output looks similar to:

    [[email protected]:~] vim-cmd hbrsvc/vmreplica.getState 55
    Retrieve VM running replication state:
    (vim.fault.ReplicationVmFault) {
    faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,
    reason = “notConfigured”,
    state = <unset>,
    instanceId = <unset>,
    vm = ‘vim.VirtualMachine:55’,
    msg = “Received SOAP response fault from [<cs p:1fwaf548, TCP:localhost:80>]: getGroupState
    vSphere Replication operation error: Virtual machine is not configured for replication.”
