Im working with the new VMware replication app that came out with 5.1. I was wondering if anyone knows how i can speed up the initial sync between the sites. Can I trick it to think that its already replicated the data, and have it sync the changes. I'm currently working with a slow p2p connection to my DR site.

You can copy the current live to your DR site datastores (ie by USB stick / DVD etc), then you only need to do the delta sync to get up-to-date..

But you must say so before setting up the initial replication otherwise it will overwrite it and do a full sync anyway.
So select the MULTIPLE machines that you want to replicate, select vsphere replication, the wizard will show "Target VM Location".  You can then tick the "initial copies of the .vmdk files have been placed in the target datastores".  Then it will compare whats there with the live and do any recent delta changes..
