i have a storage policy with a primary and an auxilary-copy. the primary copy goes to a library on the commmserv. the auxilary copy goes to a mediaagent offsite.
when i want to restore (eg.: virtual machine files) i can select the offsite medaiagent for browsing and restore but it doesnot use it for restore even when i select it in the data-path.
i traced the problem down to the following situation:
when an auxcopy is running the browse-operation finds the backups immediately on the dest media-agent even when the media is not copied yet. so commvault falls back to the primary library when restoring.
when the auxcopy is done, everything works fine.
can someone tell me why the media is browsabel on the offsite mediaagent when the auxcopy process is still running and the media is not copied and because of that not restorable?
