Thanks Dmitry, so if I were to convert the local repository to per-vm, that would cause a local active full to take place which would then cause that active full to be copied to the backup copy repository (off-site) so I might as well convert both at the same time?

Paul, what Dmitry is meaning is that for the per-VM option to take effect, you need to trigger active full (either manually or by schedule). Until that, your backup chains will continue to keep all VMs in a single restore point. This is valid both for backup and backup copy jobs.
