We have 2 masters using AIR and I would like to move one client from one master to the replica partner due to a more favorable network topology with the replica master. Since the images are already on the target, can I import them into that master and assign them to a policy/client?
The replicated images are automatically imported on the remote master as soon as the replication has completed.
So, nothing to import.
You can test by browsing remote master for this particular client's backups.
You should be able to create a policy on the remote/replica master and deactivate/delete policy in the original master.
Remember to verify port connectivity and forward/reverse lookup and to update SERVER entries on the client.
