Moving a Mount Path - Support

Supported Mount Paths

  • A disk library with multiple disk devices. For example, a disk library Lib1 with disk devices Device_1 and Device_2.
  • Multiple disk devices pointing to the same path on the same disk library or on multiple libraries. For example:
    • Disk devices Device_1 and Device_2 pointing to path D:\MP1 on disk library Lib1.
    • Disk devices Device_1 and Device_2 pointing to path D:\MP1 on disk library Lib1 and Lib2.

Unsupported Mount Paths

  • Mount paths cannot be moved across 2 different libraries. For example, from Magnetic_Lib1 to Magnetic_Lib2.
  • A disk device configured as multiple mount paths on the same library or on multiple libraries. For example:
    • Path D:\MP1 and D:\MP1 on a disk library Lib1 associated with disk device Device_1
    • Path D:\MP1 on disk library Lib1 and path D:\MP1 on disk library Lib2 associated with disk device Device_1

Additional Information

  • Cross-platform move mount path operation is not supported. You cannot move a mount path from Windows to Linux or from Linux to Windows.
  • Cross-version move mount path operation is not supported. You cannot move a mount path from V10 MediaAgent to a V11 MediaAgent or from V11 MediaAgent to V10 MediaAgent.
  • You cannot run move mount path operations on V9 MediaAgents.
  • To avoid slow data transfer, do not move mount paths between UNC paths.
  • You can move a mount path across V10 MediaAgents that are pointing to V11 CommServe.
  • You cannot move a mount path shared using the Data Server-IP, SAN or iSCSI to a UNC destination path.
  • If you move from a local mount path to a UNC mount path, and the UNC mount path does not support sparse files, then the data will grow in size.
  • On Linux, sparse files are not supported.
