1, Veeam has excellent support and I would recommend logging a support ticket with them directly.

2. Replication of that size I would do a Local backup of it and transfer the backup to site and use that backup as a repository for the replication job (once off) This is just to get the bulk of the data at your DR site.

3. The error, the drop in communication between your site and DR is probably the cause of the issue.
