    By default there is a registry key disabled which will allow data protection operations to accumulate once the Aux Copy has started.  By enabling this key the Aux Copy will not copy data protection operations that finish after the Aux Copy has started.  This keeps the Aux Copy from “piling up” so to speak.

    Now my question is (and I’m asking because I can’t find anything in the InnerVault) is if I enable this key do I have to kill a currently running Aux Copy and start over or can I suspend the Aux Copy, enable the key, resume the Aux Copy and it will stop accepting new DP data moving forward.

    This change is on the CommServe and I’m assuming I have to bounce the CommServe for it to take effect. (correct me if I’m wrong please)

    You would have to kill the job but that is of no consequence. Aux jobs pickup where they left off so its not like killing a backup that would start new.
    You do not need to recycle services.

    Put in key/kill job, run it again.
