Replacing capacity tier

Post by selva »

I have an SOBR with a single capacity tier which I want to retire asap. The only option I have for a replacement right now is to use another repo which is already a target of some jobs. Can I just put the old one into maintenance mode, add the new one and expect all existing jobs targetted to it to move there? Would existing backups in there would be affected?

Or, would it better to create a new folder on the target server and use it as a fresh repository? Can I also copy all data from the old one to the new one and retarget those jobs too, so that I can avoid a new full backup?

Can VeeaMover be used to move the data from one extent to another now for capacity tier?

Evacuate functionality does leverage VeeaMover.
