Replication Metadata Retention

Post by meggerz » Dec 04, 2018 3:16 pm

Running 9.5 with replicas. How is the default retention for replication metadata determined? One of my jobs has 7 VMDK files in the metadata folder and this job is configured to keep 7 replica snapshots, so this makes sense to me. Another job has 30+ and is configured to keep 14 snapshots. Is this normal?

Hi Megan, basically it should honor your replication job retention policy. If this is not the case, you can manually delete excessive files. Feel free to contact support if you'd like to investigate the reasons for that.
