I'm trying to replicate a VM ( in VMware) to Azure but after it reaches 100% the status is "waiting for first recovery point".

I already followed this Troubleshooting but it seems all okay.

I restarted Source Server and Process server but the problem still exists.

What else can i do?

Best Regards

You will be seeing this behavior when changes are still pending on your source VM which are yet to be committed.  Can you check what does the pending data shows in Replication Item -> Click on the VM -> Disks  and check the pending data. 

Here, Microsoft should at-least propose an estimated time to get a new recovery point instead of saying like waiting for a new recovery point. This will at-least help or fix this issue.

Now the status is "Protected" but when i try to start a Planned Failover ( Test Failover) it says that it didn't generate a recovery point.

I have this warning:

Error ID: 78188

Error Message: The data change rate(churn) for one or more replicating disks has exceeded the Azure Site Recovery supported limits:

Possible Causes: The data change rate (write bytes/sec) on one or more disks of the virtual machine is more than the Azure Site Recovery supported limits for the selected replication target storage type.

Recommendation: 1. Review the Azure Site Recovery supported limits 2. If the problem continues to persist, use the Azure Site Recovery deployment planner to help plan target storage selection to replicate the virtual machine
Is it the problem for not creating recovery points?

It means still data changes are pending. You can login into the server and run below commands and check the pending data changes:

ASR agent installation path --> bin >> drvutil --ps

It will show you all the disks status along with pending information and each disks status should be in DataMode.. I it is in Non-Data or BitMap then still data has not drained to cloud.
