  • DR replication and removing a few servers from the Dash to DR and dedupe
    Posted: 09-09-2014, 4:12 PM


    We currenty having a problem trying to get our data replicated out to our DR site in another state.  The problem is we have a pipe being utilized by our netapp, commvault and other mission critical systems. (we are currently looking at circuit options to upgrade the pipe between the two)

    So as an option to get mission critical systems replicated out to our DR - we decided taking a few of our SAS data out of the replication process and adding them onto a new storage policy that still continues to backup the sas data just removes it from the replication to DR process.

    So which leads me to my question - if we create a new SP and add our SAS data to the new policy and remove it from the old policy - what happens to the deduped data from the old SP will it have to dedupe the data using up more disk space?

    What I don't want to do is lose the deduped data and have to re-backup the data in the new storage policy and have to retain all the jobs and data on the old SP keeping it separate. 


    Or is there a way to exclude certain types of data from the aux copy replication to DR with creating a new SP?

    Hello Tatsit,

    1. If you create a new copy or new policy and move any new jobs with dedupe enabled, you will lay down a new baseline as you're introducing new blocks into the engine

    2.  You could prevent the replication (guessing this is a DASH copy?) of select clients by removing them from the associations tab.

    3.  If you were to use option #1, the data would eventually age off the other copy once retention is met, or you manually prune those jobs to "catchup"

    4.  On the existing replication (guessing this is a DASH copy) you could also View Jobs and diable the jobs which are in a Partial or To Be Copied state as well to catchup
