Creating a Parallel Copy

You can create multiple copies of the data concurrently instead of sequentially. The data is read from the source media (only once) and written to different copies. Therefore, multiple copies are written in parallel by reading the source media only once.

  1. Download the sp_copycreation.xml file and save it on the computer from where the command will be executed.
  2. Execute the following command from the <software_installation_directory>/Base folder after substituting the parameter values.

    qoperation execute -af <downloaded location>\sp_copycreation.xml -storagePolicyName 'xxxxx' -libraryName 'xxxxx' -mediaAgentName 'xxxxx' -retainArchiverDataForDays xx -retainBackupDataForCycles xx -retainBackupDataForDays xx -copyName 'xxxxx' -enableParallelCopy 1


    qoperation execute -af <downloaded location>\sp_copycreation.xml -storagePolicyName 'SP1' -libraryName 'Lib1' -mediaAgentName 'MA1' -retainArchiverDataForDays 5 -retainBackupDataForCycles 10 -retainBackupDataForDays 5 -copyName 'Copy1' -enableParallelCopy 1
