  • Move data from tape to disk
    Posted: 05-10-2016, 11:59 AM

    We are moving away from tape.  We currently have a policy with infinite rentention and would like to get that moved over to our disk storage.  How do I need to go about setting that up?  The tapes in question will all be offsite and need to be pulled back into the library.  Thanks.

    You can set up an aux copy and then promote the copy and redirect the source and detaination libaries of the other associted copies.

    Hi KM, what version of Commvault are you on.

    Also how do you plan to set the retention on the new copy, will you have other copies w/ Ext Ret rules or will it all be set on the new Disk copy (Primary copy).

    We are running 10 R2 SP11.

     

    Retention will be set to infinite on the new copy.  Everything else will be set on the disk copy.

     

    If I create a new aux copy to pull this data from tape to disk am I going to see the backup dates changed?  One concern I have is searching the data to do a restore and not knowing when it was actually backed up.  Will the new aux copy put it's own timestamp on the job?

    In RE to" If I create a new aux copy to pull this data from tape to disk am I going to see the backup dates changed? "

    No. The JOB IDS from the Source stay the same and the attributes of the original job in terms of when it was backed up ( original time stamp) get carried over.
