Create remote copy with old backups

Post by ostayg » May 18, 2018 10:35 pm

Hello all,

I have backup job which is working since 3 years.
I have also a Local Copy job (with W, M and Y retention). So a lot of full backups.

Now I want also have a Remote Copy Job. But if I create the job I will only have one full backup the first time.
But I want have the backups of the 3 last years on my remote server.

Is there a way to perform this? How can I proceed?

Thank you very much.

Backup copy only copies the latest VM state. You can copy all the backups manually and map the job to them, however, I'm not sure if GFS retention picks the existing fulls up, need to check.

Should work, retention will continue to work normally for GFS restore points as well.
