You can do that, but you must create a snapshot on the VM before you start it for testing, and then revert the VM back to the original state (pre-snapshot) once you are done with your testing.

do u have a step by step guide on how to do this replication test from within hyperv and not with the veem failover?
how i revert back to the original state of the replica dr and when i do with the snapshot that i created?
if i delete the snapshot then it merge them together.

In fact, the replica testing procedure includes just steps mentioned by Anton.

“Apply” operation allows you to return to the pre-snapshot state, meanwhile, all the changes made are discarded.

Based on your original post, it seems that the described process has worked for you previously – has anything changed since then? Thanks.

Also, have you considered updating to version 7 that provides you with the ability to automatically test replica VMs via Surebackup jobs? Thanks.

I must have confused two product versions. VMWare and Hyper-V one. Currently, there is no SureReplica for Hyper-V. Again, sorry for confusion.
