To control the network traffic between the source and the target site, you can pause and resume replications.


Verify that you have enough privileges to manage replications in the vSphere Web Client. See Roles and Permissions that Disaster Recovery to Cloud Requires.


  1. On the vSphere Replication Home page, click the Monitor tab, and click Outgoing Replications.
  2. Right-click the replication task that you want to pause or resume and select the corresponding menu item.

    You can pause and resume multiple replications simultaneously only if they are replicated to the same virtual data center.

  3. Click Yes to confirm.
  4. If your user session to the cloud provider has expired, enter your credentials and click OK to reconnect.
