Creating an Inline Copy

An Inline Copy allows you to create additional copies of data at the time of backup. An Auxiliary Copy operation is not required to replicate the data from the primary copy to secondary copy. An Inline copy enables efficient utilization of the media drives and reduces the delay in the offsite storage of the data.

  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' -inlineAuxCopy 1


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

    If you want to create an inline copy Copy1 and prevent a job from being copied when the library of the primary copy is same as the library of the Copy1, execute the following command:

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