Can the location of the new jobs point to the existing location of the Replica's that are being mapped?
By definitaion the existing replicas will obviously be used since we're specifying them in the mapping, but we also have available the Datastore option on the Destination tab.
I'm currently getting 'cannot complete operation as the file or folder is in use ..' pointing to the vmdk file, so thought the fact that I pointed to the same datastore as the replica's are sitting in may cause this?
If I specify a different location, wouldn't I then end up with a copy of the replica and hence blow twice the storage space of my LUN, albeit temporarily until I delete the old replica?

Regarding the error message, seems that it is caused by something else (maybe the replica VM is turned on or the file is somehow locked, need to see logs). I would suggest to address our support team with your log files for investigation. Thanks!

It has resolve the issue for me. What I have done is
Locate the VM folder within the required VMFS datastore.
Look in the folder and see if there are any existing *delta-* files present. In each case there was one delta file visible
rename the delta file *delta*.BAK eg/ VMname-000003-delta.vmdk.BAK
Attempt and confirm snapshots working from VI Client
Delete any test snapshots and re-run the replication job to confirm workign successfully.
Most likely my next replication run shall move a larger amount of data but replication jobs are up and running once more.
