  • Delete backup job within a storage policy copy (tape copy of snapvault)

    If I delete a backup job within a primary copy (disk or tape) of a storage policy, does this affect the backup job on the snap or snapvault copy as well?

    Thanks, Christoph

    Hi Christoph 

    If you are referring to the Backup Copy, where the Snap Backup is written to a Commvault Disk Library, deleting the Jobs will not have impact on the Snap or Snapvault. 

    But please be aware the purpose of Backup Copy is to retain a copy of the snapshot (whether it is for long term purpose or compliance) because Hardware Array usually have limits of how many snapshot it can retain (usually 256).

    Regards

    Hi Winston

    Thanks for the quick answer. 

    The plan is to delete the job from the tape copy and run the backup copy again. During the initial backup copy there were some objects not written to tape ...

    Regards

    Hi Christoph 

    As mentioned in the other thread

    http://forum.commvault.com/forums/thread/66460.aspx

    If you are looking to re-copy a Backup Copy job, you will need to engage support due to the snapshot index limitation 

    If you already have an Incidnet can you also PM me

    Regards

    We opened a ticket with support team and they mentioned that re-copy is not possible if the primary snapshot no longer exists and the clients is using indexing V1.
