Data Aging and Deconfigured Clients

When a client or an agent is deconfigured, the client's data is aged according to the corresponding storage policy copy’s retention time and cycle rules.

If necessary, you can ignore retention cycle rules for the deconfigured client. This option prevents the deconfigured client's data from being aged according to backup cycles that the client is no longer included in.

Tip: You can temporarily suspend client activity to age its data without uninstalling the client software or meeting the cycle retention requirement. This makes media more readily available for new data.

  1. On the ribbon in the CommCell Console, click the Storage tab, click the Media Management.
  2. In the Media Management Configuration dialog box, click the Data Aging tab.
  3. In the Ignore Cycles Retention on De-Configured Clients box, type 1.
  4. Click OK.

Note: The OnePass feature ignores the Ignore Cycles Retention on De-Configured Clients parameter.
