Initial Prepopulating form the Cloud is based on the connection of the CLoud in some cases it can happen that it will show 0% for long time, the Errors mentioned could point to Version mismatch between the Altavault which backed up to the Cloud and the Altvault which Prepoulates his Datastore, Different Version expect different Files.
however if you ave a Problem retrieving any Data from the Cloud, its highly recommend to open a Case with Netapp Support as early as possible to make sure there is no inconsistency.

if you have a Issue with Migration of the Virtual Appliance, then please open a new thread on Consideration for Migrating Virtual Appliance beteen ESX hosts.
Short Answer on this: the AVAv is not consipated to ba a HA VM, movements via VMotions are not supported
> you can move/copy the VM in a switched off state but not Live
> you locked you Secure Vault because the MAC adresses of the Network Interfaces changed which will change the Default Password which is set by default on the Secure Vault duing installation. You need to set those Mac Adresses back to the vaule it was on the the other ESX.
> you can prevent this by actually setting a Passwort on the Secure Vault before you migrate the VM
if you forget the password then you can only reset the Secure Vault which means you need to delete the content of the SecureVault which is for example the Encryption Key of you Data in the Cloud and with no backup you would loose the ability to read this data. https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1015009
