This is true, but the simple workaround is to install another copy of VBR at the DR site, even if just temporary.
But if you don't want to do this, then using the "Restore virtual disks" option and ignoring the warning about powering off the source VM is the best best. As long as you have properly selected an alternate target VM for the disk restore the warning is superfluous.
