Note

If a replication is in the Not Active replication state, you might have connected the source and target sites using network address translation (NAT). vSphere Replication does not support NAT. Use credential-based authentication and network routing without NAT when connecting the sites. Another cause for a Not Active replication state might be that the source virtual machine is powered off. Automatic replication works only on virtual machines that are powered on.
