  • Media Refresh Disk Library, Moving Archived data from old to new disk Library.
    Posted: 09-12-2019, 9:00 AM

    Hello,

    We have Windows file archiving enabled. Different files are archived from production file server/Storage and stored in Commvault content store (around 20 TB).

    Now I am migrating my Commvault setup to new Hyperscale Appliance (HPE APOLLO 4200 GEN9), part of that I need to migrate all archived data from exiting Commvault disk library to new Hyperscale storage pool.

    Importantly.!  After the migration stubs should point to actual data in new disk library and recalls shoud work  

    What would be the best way to achieve it? I have seen few suggestion

    1. Dash copy everything under backup/archive storage policy to new Disk library.
    2. Create Synchronous copy for backup/archive SP and Aux copy all archives to new library and promoted sync copy to primary copy after completion.

     What you guys think about it?

    Thank you.

    Hi Ansal,

     

    Option 2 will work. I have moved libraries before. Just create a seconday copy for your new library and run an aux copy, after you are done moving all your data, you can promote the seconday to primary and after your data has aged off, delete the old copy.

    Hi Ansal 

    Agree with bcbsops as well, after creating new Syncrhonous Copy do a Dash Copy of the data to the New Copy and then promote it to Primary. For Archive Stub data it follows the Primary Copy when doing recall, so just make sure the new Synchronous copy has the same retention as your original Primary 

    Regards
