Backup, replication, and recovery of encrypted VMware VMs, is done as that for the non-encrypted ones, but there are some limitations.

  1. SAN data transfer mode is not supported.
  2. Encrypted VMs will be recovered into non-encrypted ones.
  3. Due to VMware limitations, the Application-aware mode is not available for encrypted VMs, only crash-consistent VM backups and replicas can be made. 
  4. To use Hot Add for VMware, the VM which hosts NAKIVO Backup & Replication Transporter must be encrypted as well.
  5. The recovered VM will not boot if the source VM was encrypted and had modified NVRAM settings (refer to https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1503).
