A. Change the current active node to passive and run another sync job. This node should not change back during the sync job as it will result in the same error.

B. Re-protect the workload to same target VM:

1. Remove workload and keep the target VM.

2. Revert the target VM snapshot state to "PowerConvertReadyToBoot". This will be done in the VM’s snapshot manager within the Virtual Infrastructure client/Vsphere client.

3. Add source workload with incremental replication option and protection target selected.

4. Rerun incremental replication.
