  • Data ageing after storgae policy changed
    Posted: 04-02-2020, 12:05 PM

    Hi all,


    I have a query regarding data ageing.

    I know that if you change the storage policy for a subclient , the last full of that subclient residing on old storage policy will not prune as per its retention steeing unless I run a full job of that subclient in the new storage policy.

    This created a problem for me- 

    I changed the storage policy of a sublicent and ran 2 incrementals on new storage policy and then deconfigured the client.


    Now the data from the old storage policy copy is not ageing as per retention setting. In data ageing and forcasting report it says  "SP_CHANGE_KEEP_LAST_FULL".


    The client is already deconfigured so I cannot run full on the new storage policy. and Commvault is able to recognise that the client has already been deconfigured.


    Is there any key or setting which I can apply to ignore the change of storage policy for that subclient or any way that I can age off the job of old storage policy?

    Out of curiosity do you have the ignore cycles retention on deconfigured clients set to 1 in the Data Aging section of Media Management?

    @Anthony.hodges- yes, that setting is already set to 1. Still my data retention and forcasting report shows- SP_CHANGE_KEEP_LAST_FULL for those clients/subclient's jobs.

    Hi Saurabh,

    it looks like here that the default sub-client was deconfigured is that correct? for now you can manually remove the jobs.

    the expectiation is that the sub-client will remain active after switching storage policies and ageing will continue without full, but since it was deconfigured we are keeping it around.

    there is a CMR to resolve this issue but please open a ticket with support and they can assist in cleaing up the older jobs.

    Thanks Gary,

    It means it is going to be fixed in next hotfix/sp/version. Am I right?
