The workflow runs a planned migration of a virtual machine with configured incoming replication from a remote cloud site to local site.

If you have run test recoveries for the virtual machine that you want to migrate, verify that you have cleaned up the results. You can check the virtual machine test status in vSphere Web Client.

You must select a virtual machine with configured incoming replication from the remote cloud site to the local site.
