    Option Action
    Skip the check for non-protected replica virtual machines while deactivating the protection site during Planned Migration. The default value is false. Move the slider to enable the value replication.disablePiggybackVmsCheckDuringDeactivate.

    Change the timeout in seconds to wait when creating a placeholder virtual machine. The default value is 300 seconds. Enter a new value in the replication.placeholderVmCreationTimeout text box.
    Periodically poll the virtual machines in storage policy protection groups for missing mappings and report a warning if any mappings are missing that can cause the storage policy protection group recovery to fail. The default value is false. Move the slider to change the value replication.pollForMissingInventoryMappings to true.
    Note: The setting is not supported in VMware Site Recovery.
    Enable or disable the preservation of VM Tags on the recovery site for recovered virtual machines. The default value is true. Move the slider to change the value replication.preserveVmTags to false.
    Note: To attach tags to recovered virtual machines on the recovery site, the setting must be set to true on the recovery site.
    Change the timeout in seconds to wait for consistency group information to be replicated to the remote site before starting an online sync on that site. The default is 900 seconds. Enter a new value in the replication.protectionInfoSyncTimeout textbox.
