Some vSphere Replication operations might take a long time to complete during a heavy load.

Operations such as recovering virtual machines fail with the following error:

Object 'GID-...' is locked by another ongoing operation in VRMS. Please try again later.

When running under heavy load, some vSphere Replication operations might take a longer time to complete and other operations can fail with this error because a background update operation on the replication group is slow and holds a lock on the replication for a long time.

Results

Retry the failed operation after a few minutes.
