Move backup copy files to new storage

Veeam Logoby dib » Fri Aug 11, 2017 10:16 am

Hi

Can you use this guide https://www.veeam.com/kb1729 to move backup copy files to new location? Or do you have to use seeding as this guide shows https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/vsphere/backup_copy_mapping_auxiliary.html

I would like to keep the backup chain, if possible.

Hope some one can clear this for me.

Ok I'll try to copy the backupcopy files to the new repository, and then change the repository in the backupcopy job it self.

Hope that work and will keep the backup chains.

Yes, the chains should be continued, provided you do everything right.

Just copied the files to the new repository and pointed the BCJ to it. Everything works fine.

Thanks for your help.
