Support Information - Storage Policy Copy
From these windows, jobs are displayed with the following status levels:
|Status||Copy Type||When Displayed|
|Available||Primary, Synchronous, and Selective||Data is available on the primary copy for data recovery, data aging, and auxiliary copy operations. On the secondary copy, this status displays after data is copied from the primary copy and is now available for data recovery and data aging operations.|
|Available and Retained||Primary, Synchronous, and Selective||A job is retained and will not be pruned when a data aging operation is run.|
|Not Selected||Selective||A job has not been manually selected for being copied to a selective copy.|
|Partial||Synchronous and Selective||Data is partially copied from the primary copy.|
|Partial & Not Selected||Selective||A job was partially copied and de-selected for being copied to a selective copy.|
|To Be Copied||Selective and Synchronous||Data is selected to be copied from the primary copy to the secondary copy.|
|To Be Copied and Deferred||Selective and Synchronous||Data is selected to be copied from the primary copy to the secondary copy, and it has not met the specified number of deferred days.|
The View Jobs option is useful in various circumstances, including the following:
The Retain Job feature allows you to prevent a job from being pruned during a data aging operation. A job can be manually retained from the Jobs for Storage Policy Copy window. Once a job is selected to be retained, the status for that job is displayed as Available and Retained in the Status column. Once selected, this job will not be pruned when a data aging operation is run. Once retained, the job can be de-selected for manual retention using the Do Not Retain Job Option. For more information, see Manually Retain a Job on a Storage Policy Copy.
First view the list of jobs that are not selected to be copied. To view the jobs on this selective copy, see View the Jobs of a Storage Policy Copy. While configuring this operation, remember to check the Jobs that will not be copied option in the Jobs in Storage Policy Advanced Filter Options dialog box.
The Jobs for Storage Policy Copy window will display the jobs that will not be copied to the selective copy. From here, you can right-click on the job that you want to copy to the selective copy, and select the Select for copy option.
|When the job is selected, the job is displayed with a status of To be Copied. The job will now be copied to selective copy during the next auxiliary copy operation.|
|You can also deselect the job for the copy by simply right-clicking on the job and selecting the Deselect for Copy option.|
Pruning a job from a copy will remove the job permanently from the CommServe database before it has exceeded its retention criteria. The software will also prune all jobs that are dependent on the job you have selected for pruning. For example, if you select a full data protection operation job to be pruned, all subsequent jobs will be pruned up to the next full data protection operation. Also, if an incremental or differential data protection operation job is selected, only that job will be pruned. In addition, if the most recent full data protection operation is pruned from the primary storage policy copy, the next job of that subclient will be converted to a full data protection operation.
A job can be pruned from a copy from the Jobs for Storage Policy Copy window. For more information, see Delete a Job.
Once pruned from the copy, by default the job cannot be restored during a data recovery operation. However, if you have the need to recover such data, see Accessing Aged Data.
The Disable for Copy feature allows you to manage your Auxiliary Copy operations manually. This feature is useful if an auxiliary copy operation fails to read data that is on a bad media and cannot continue. When media becomes bad or inoperable, the Auxiliary Copy operation is not able to successfully copy data from that media to the destination media.
Marking a job disabled from a storage policy copy removes the capability of a job (that may be on bad media) to be copied during an Auxiliary Copy operation. A disabled full data protection operation is also not counted as a valid cycle during a data aging operation. The software will also disable those jobs that are dependent on the job you have selected to be marked disabled. For example, if you select a full data protection operation to be disabled, all subsequent data protection operations will be disabled up to the next full data protection operation. Also, if an incremental or differential data protection operation job is selected, only that job will be disabled. In addition, if the most recent full data protection operation is disabled from the primary storage policy copy, the next data protection operation of that subclient will be converted to a full data protection operation.
Jobs can be disabled on a copy from the Jobs for Storage Policy Copy window. For more information, see Disable/Enable a Job From Storage Policy Copy.
