  • Windows FS Archive - files dont get stubbed
    Posted: 12-05-2014, 10:08 AM

    Hello there!

    The problem is: I have created a disk library (F:\SimpanaArchive\) and storage policy aimed to the library. CS and MA is on one server, the disk library is attached to this server.

    I have a windows server with a folder D:\toArchive\. Inside the folder there is verylarge.file 1 GB.

    I have enabled the FS for archiving, without "user explorer recovery" option. (tried the operation even with this option set to "yes")

    I have created a subclient with OnePass option, set the "Disk Cleanup" tab options to:

    start cleanup at 90 pct free

    stop cleanup at 95 pct free

    modified 0

    created 0

    size greater than 1024KB

    max file size 0

    After archiving replace with stub


    After I run the job manually - synthetic full backup - the verylarge.file gets archived (copied to archive folder on MA), but it doesnt get stubbed in the D:\toArchive folder on the server.

    Can you pls help? What am I doing wrong?



    I have disabled the delayed stubbing now, so the verylarge.file gets a stub icon, but remains at original size.


    Update 2:

    Aaanyway - I have double checked the documentation and found out that i havent installed the file recall driver. Deploying that one now on the servers. Sorry for bothering you guys.

    Don't forget to configure nMinDRBackupBeforeStubbing and nMinDaysBeforeStubbing strings for disaster recovery scenario.
