Continue backups to a new repository

Post by AntonZ » Dec 10, 2014 2:09 am

Hi guys,
I have 62TB volume for GFS backups, which is almost full.
How can I move my GFS jobs to a new volume/repository (new backups/incrementals will go there), while continuing to maintain the first repository (expiration rules/transforming to fulls).
Is it possible?
The goal is to have one job with particular backup policy, but to continue backups to a different place.
Thanks.

Anton, there's a way to continue backing up to another repository without copying previous backup files, however the job will stop handling retention of backups in the old repository after that. You would need to do that manually (and GFS chain will be started anew).
