Hi EV Experts,
Customer has FSA in placed, archiving is working fine and files can be recalled BUT the "x" placeholder is not changing to original file icon. The files can be opened perfectly fine but the question is why is it not changing to original file.

the first thing that comes to my mind is the usage of the pass-through recall option where the placeholder is only overwritten by the original if the calling application is requiring it.
Is this option active?

Can you share what type of file server? Window Server, NetApp?

It is a Windows Server 2016.

It has been a while but IIRC placeholder creation and archiving are commonly done on alternate runs. I believe this follows the same "is the file backed up" principal. I would check to ensure all of your savesets archived are backed up. The reports may show you what is done and as you can see there are a lot of run-modes, including those for placeholder creation. ref: https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/doc/14499690-127956933-0/v16222038-127956933
I would run through basic checks . Task configured as desired, what are the reports reporting, how many files are awaiting backup.
Passthrough certainly catches some people, but IIRC it is specalized to specific configs that at a glance, do not appear to be applicable to your situation.
