If you re-run the job, it will error out on all the VM's which succeeded before (because its now looking for the replicas at the destination), but wil successfully run the missed VM to the initial replica path.

After that though, you're out of luck. If you run into any probs with the copy/shipping to the WAN site, you can't 're-seed' again. I'm hoping the ability to do this makes it into V5 - as it makes it quite troublesome if you make any significant changes to the VM (and therefore major WAN replication time) = and can't do another seed..

Bunce is absolutely right, you should choose Retry option to "re-seed" failed VMs, besides there is no need to keep all successfull VMs on the disk while doing a retry for failed VMs. The only thing you should pay attention to is putting all VMs to the same folder at the destination storage before running an incremental pass.
