Here’s what I would like to implement:
- Local storage and a cloud copy
- Maintain snapshots in the local storage for, as an example, 180 days
- Maintain snapshots in the cloud storage for 30 days (DR copy only, save $$)
- Use a daily Copy job to update the cloud storage with newer snapshots and chunks
The problem appears to be that the Copy job will attempt to add back snaps that are older than the 30 day age criteria, correct?
Any creative ideas on how to handle that? Otherwise, my “suggestion box” entry would be to add an aging function to Copy that is similar to the Prune command.
