Migrating Storage Unit Data and Lifecycle Policies to a different Data Domain Server
I will be migrating a volume contaning Netbackup data between Data Domain servers.
Below is what we have configured currently on the source DD server:
1. The volume on the source DD is housing a disk pool.
2. The storage unit object in netbackup is pointing to the disk pool on the source DD server.
3. We have several storage lifecycle policies tied to that storage unit that have specific retention periods.
When I migrate the volume from the source DD to the destination DD, we will need to create a new storage server, configure a new disk pool on the migrated volume, create a new storage unit pointing to the new disk pool and change the storage lifecycle policies to use the new storage unit.
My question is, will the retentions periods from the old storage units remain in effect? Will the old data from the old storage lifecycle policies age off as configured in the old policies?
