Hello Juan,

Replica import is not supported in Veeam B&R. You can only import backup files, however this won't allow you re-use imported backup files as destination targets for the backup jobs.

As to your problem, then in v6 we are going to allow to map replicas into existing VMs in the DR site.

Thank you.
