When you configure replication of a virtual machine, you can enable multiple point in time (PIT) instances in the recovery settings in the Configure Replication wizard. vSphere Replication retains instances of the virtual machine on the target site based on the number of retention policy that you specify. vSphere Replication supports maximum of 24 instances. After you recover a virtual machine, you can revert it to a specific snapshot.

During replication, vSphere Replication replicates all aspects of the virtual machine to the target site, including any potential viruses and corrupted applications. If a virtual machine suffers from a virus or corruption and you have configured vSphere Replication to keep PIT snapshots, you can recover the virtual machine and then revert it to a snapshot of the virtual machine in its uncorrupted state.

You can also use the PIT instances to recover the last known good state of a database.

And to monitor the replications:

Procedure

1 Log in to the vSphere Web Client.
2 Select the vCenter Server to which the vSphere Replication appliance is registered.
3 Click Monitor, then click vSphere Replication.
4 Select Outgoing Replications to see details of the virtual machines replicated from this site.
5 Select Incoming Replications to see details of the virtual machines replicated to this site.

According to the status of a selected replication, you can perform different actions on the replication.

You will not see it as a VM in the inventory. Go to the datastore and you will see the ubuntu's VMDk. That's the confirmation on target side.
