vSphere Replication Interval issue.

If a VM is set to replicate at every 24 hours at 9pm, at it gets paused at some other time during the day and then unpaused at another time after that, has the 9pm interval changed? What time is the interval now based on? Will it remember the original interval of 9pm or has pausing and unpausing changed it? Just asking about pausing and not stopping. Will pausing affect when it replicates or is it always going to happen at that original time?

Are you referring to pausing the actual virtual machine?

When you configure replication, you set a recovery point objective (RPO) to determine the period of time between replications.

This replication occurs, no matter if you have paused the VM.

I'm talking about pausing the replication, not the VM. So the VM is chugging along for days with already setup replication that is paused. I unpaused it. Is it going to replicate at its original time or have I changed the interval by pausing and unpausing?

if you are replicating everty 24 hours, e.g. your RPO is 24?

so, this determins the replication interval,  the RPO value configured is the maximum amount of data that can be lost in the case of a site failure. Pausing will not affect the replication interval.
