Changing the connection type of an existing DD repository

Post by ori » Sep 03, 2017 10:46 am

Hi,
What would be the procedure to switch the connectivity mode of an existing Data Domain repository from Over-TCP to Over-Fibre, with minimal impact on existing backups?

Hi,

1. Create new DD repository, select the Use Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity check box and specify proxy server that is connected to the DD via FC, and select the same storage unit with "Import existing backups automatically" checkbox enabled;

2. Go to the job setting and map it to the existing backup chain on the "new" DD repository.

3. Go to backups and find your existing backup chain, right click on it and select "Remove from backups";

Thank you.
