How to migrate backups between MSDP's

Hello people.
I have a domain with two MSDP but a MSDP this with 89% in use and another 35% in use and I have backups with one-year retention.
In this case, I wonder what is the best practice to migrate a backup between MSDP?
I need to reduce a use the first MSDP !

Re: How to migrate backups between MSDP's

Hi,

 

Unofortunately its not as simple as just expiring images. Since deduplication happens on the container/pool the data you expire might be locked up by other images as its all interlinked.

 

Try to move quite a large chunk of the data set to the other MSDP. duplicate it and then expire, and then wait for cleanup to happen.

Sorry can't give a you a definitive fix for this.
