I have installed a fileserver archiving agent and all seems to be working (reporting 200 or so GB archived) it archives to tape..
1 - Does the archived icon (on files that have been archived) change to something else? (so that you know it's archived)
2 - What size is the stub file? and does it still report the original file size?
3 - I have selected under "stub rules" "preserve stubs until the media is pruned" I want to keep the stub files there infinately so that a user can just click it and bring it back from tapes is the above the right selection for that or should i select "preserve until" and select a really high number?
At the moment I am archiving all files over 5 years old (modified) and have not been accessed for a month and that side of it seems to be ok, when I look at view archived file list from a previous job and navigate to that file it just looks like nothing has changed and opens immediately when I click on it??? I suppose I should take the tape out and see if it truly has been archived which I will try when a current archive job finishes.
Sorry for the questions but I have had a trawl through books online and can't find any of my basic answers (though they are probably there somewhere)
Thanks for any help and info.
