Correct, as stated above, you either need to recreate the backup copy job with the new block size or revert the block size on the original jobs and perform active full.

Thank you for the confirmation, foggy.
BTW, is there any statistical data about local vs LAN target ragarding incrementals size, deduplication ratio (I suppose deduplication will be done only in the backup copy job) and performance, especially regarding endpoint backup?
It would help to be able to make the decision if the change is worth all the work.

The block size is half less for LAN target, so the size of incremental backups will also be smaller, depending on the changes pattern. In terms of performance, it will require up to double I/O, since the number of blocks will increase.
