Moving files on scale out repository

Post by nreutemann » Oct 15, 2016 2:32 pm

Hello everyone,

I already have an Scale Out Repository, but I want to change the policy from "Data Locality" to "Performance".
There is a way so I can rearrange the files manually, without the need of make a new full backup?

I dont have spare space to put all together manually on a new repository, and add that repository to the scale out and after that, using the "evacuate" function.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

Nicolas.

Hi, Nicolas. Your English is fine! You can simply move the files around manually, then hit Rescan on the repository. Thanks!

I already re-arranged the files manually and, after that, done a rescan repository.
Everything goes fine and now, I got 2 repositories, 1 for synthetics fulls backups and another one for .vib and .vrb. The test was fine, so, everything is ok.

One more time, thanks gostev! Good luck on Barcelone VMWolrd.

Best regards,

Nicolas.
