Backup Copy Job - Which Restore Points Will Be Copied.

Post by LThibx » Dec 09, 2018 1:58 pm

Over the weekend I performed some major cleanup on a clients server with the intention to reduce disk space usage and in the end re-seed the client's instance on the Cloud Connect Repository. In short this is what I had done:
  • Removed From Disk All Cloud Connect Data
  • Cleaned up client's server
  • Ran a new Active Full on local BDR
Everything is working fine. Currently the BCJ is copying data to Cloud Connect.
Cloud Connect has no data...that is correct.
Locally I have restore points dating back to Nov 3 with an Active full run on the first Saturday of each month. And I manually ran an AF last night after the cleanup.
So what I have is: .VBK (Nov 3)...vib...vib...etc....VBK (Dec 1)...vib...vib...etc...VBK (Dec 8th).

Here is my question...
BCJ is currently copying data to CC. Only 3% done after 10 hours or so. Is it going to copy RPs from Nov 3, or only from the last Active Full from last night (Dec 8th)?...which all I want in CC is Dec 8th and forward.

If it is going to copy all of the history, I will have remove the restore points previous to Dec 8th and restart the BCJ.

Appreciate any feedback on this issue.
Thanks

Hi Lonnie, backup copy job copies just the latest VM state available on the source repository, creating a single restore point on target.
