Copying the Snapshot Metadata to the Replica Copy

An automatic auxiliary copy operation runs after the snap backup operation. The default interval for the automatic auxiliary copy is 90 minutes.

If you need to browse the snapshot content of the replica copy before the automatic auxiliary copy operation runs, you must run the auxiliary copy operation to copy the snapshot metadata to the replica copy.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies > Storage Policies.
  2. Right-click the storage policy, point to All Tasks, and then click Run Auxiliary Copy.

    The Auxiliary Copy Job Options dialog box appears.

  3. In the Copy Selection area, select Select A Copy, and then from the Select A Copy list, select the replica copy.
  4. Click OK.
