When you run reprotect on a recovery plan that contains vSphere Replication protection groups, the operation times out with an error.

Reprotect operations on recovery plans that contain vSphere Replication protection groups fail with the error

Operation timed out: 7200 seconds VR synchronization failed for VRM
	 group <Unavailable>. Operation timed out: 7200 seconds


When you run reprotect, Site Recovery Manager performs an online sync for the vSphere Replication protection group, which might cause the operation to timeout. The default timeout value is 2 hours.

Increase the synchronizationTimeout timeout value in Advanced Settings. See Change vSphere Replication Settings.
