I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The problem here is RecoverPoint

RP will lock the LUN/device, so when you expand it on the source array, it will not show up on the local ESXi servers.

Unfortunately, there is no way to do this without breaking the replication
