I have this logged as Case # 02175363 and been told what we are doing isn't supported yet it can be done and does work.
Let me scope it out
"ESXHOST001" running virtual "SERVERFPS001"
We have a backup job of "SERVERFPS001" going to "SITE-A Repository"
We have a copy job of "SERVERFPS001" going from "SITE-A Repository" to "DataCenter Repository"
We have a copy job of "SERVERFPS001" going from "DataCenter Repository" (using the Source option and specifying "DataCenter Repository") to "Tape Repository"
This works for several sites and several Backups with out issue. recently it was discovered that someone throttled the bandwidth from 100mbs to 10mbs between "DataCenter Repository" and "Tape Repository", which broke most of the copy jobs.
The copy jobs that were not affected by this throttle rule were not impacted and have continued to work but the ones that were impacted I'm having all sorts of issues getting back up and running, hence the support request.
Support have come back and said this isn't supported and they are putting a feature request in to disable this from being able to be configured.
Is anyone else doing this ? if not, how are you doing this sort of setup with out running multiple copy jobs of the same data from the remote site ?
