Unless I'm missing a way of doing it, I'd like to be able to initiate an active full COPY for a single VM, without having to create a full copy of ALL vms in the job.
In my case it's because of a (most-likely self-inflicted) issue where a previous pass of the copy job failed for a small number of VMs but I hadn't noticed it.
Whilst tidying jobs up after some significant changes I was getting the following error at the end of the copy interval:
"Failed to generate points Error: Points group does not contain full point, oldest point date <date>"
The date in question was where the job failed part-way thought (can't remember why now) so after checking the RPs I found a number of them with a full RP with a status of "Incomplete".
So, rather than have to re-seed the whole lot, I tested deleting the backup copy (ALL rps) of a small minor VM, re-synced & as expected it started a full copy.
I'd like to be able to stage/manage such a full copy in future without having to mess around disabling/re-enabling the copy job (i.e. I had to disable the job to delete the backup but then re-starting the job started the copy immediately whereas I'd like to be able to get it to start later/OOH. This way I had to edit the schedule to block out a time window, then I'll have to edit the schedule again to block it back in again.
It would be SO much easier if I could somehow right-click a VM & say "perform active full copy of this VM on the next pass".
Hopefully makes sense!
