The Stop-VMInitialReplication cmdlet stops an ongoing initial replication that uses either a virtual machine restored from backup or the network. It does not stop an initial
replication that uses external media. For an initial replication that uses external media, you can use this cmdlet to stop the export, which returns the virtual machine to a
pending state. After an export is finished, the initial replication cannot be stopped.
