I wonder if someone could help me with a scenario, please.
I am planning to retire some mount paths from a disk library. They are on old legacy hardware that is liable to fail. I have V11SP12.
On these mount paths I want to retire there is a mix of both long and short term data.
Short term data I will let age out once the mountpaths are disabled.
Long term data will have a new selective copy created and I will force this to go to new mount paths so in theory I will not need the selective copies on the disabled mount paths anymore. The new selective will have a new DDB (DDBSel2) configuring so in theory all selective copies will be protected now on a new DDB and on new mount paths.
The original selective copy (on the disabled mountpaths) was from a remote site and uses the same DDB (DDBPri/Sel) as the primary short term copies on this site, so that DDB is used by two copies. This means I need to keep this DDB active once the long term data has been dealt with so that the primary copies still have their existing DDB.
My concern is that there will be data on the disabled mountpaths that is referenced by the DDB (DDBPri/Sel) that I need to leave active. I don't know the best process to follow to ensure all references for the primary copy will be on the active mountpaths.
Should I go through and force deletion of all jobs on the disabled mountpaths? Short term should be gone anyway and long term copied so in theory I'm covered? Must I remove the mount paths from the library?
Has anyone any experience in this, please? Have I explained it well enough? I don't know if there are things I am not considering.
Thanks very much,
