Change Repository Path

Post by wessexit » Oct 13, 2017 5:31 pm

Is it possible to change an existing repository's path on disk?

Alternatively is it possible to create a new repository, copy the repository contents over, change the repository targeted by a job and to then resume the previous job?

Thanks,

Richard.

I ended up creating a new repo and copying over the contents (having stopped the Veeam services first). I then re-targeted the job at the new repo and it picked up where it left off (i.e. didn't re-copy all mailbox data). Finally I removed the old one at the wrong path on disk which I didn't want to keep.

I'm sure this will have lost recovery point information / "point in time" views of the backed up mailboxes but this was no big deal as it was a new repository / backup job anyway.

Hi Richard,

All the information from the repository is normally saved in the repository database, and if I understand it correctly that is what you copied over. So you should have not those point in time views. If you use the veeam explorer for exchange you should be able to see those. Can you check and let us know?

Thanks
Mike

Yep, I think you're right - looks like all of the recovery points are there.

Thanks!

Richard.
