Hi to all
I have correctly configured AIR replicas for new backups, setting the second replication task, and importing on the target.
Now I'm trying to import the old images on the new appliance (operation already performed several times in the past), but I have problems:
I correctly execute the Bpverify of an image (but the problem is on all of them), but I cannot replicate it
[root@sxgepvsl0181 tmp]# bpverify -backupid gendroid_1568145610

do you have ideas?
you can AIR replicate only backups which were originally created with a Storage Lifecycle Policy, not with a source Storage Unit only.
You metioned that it worked in the past, I am sure it could not. Maybe it was a duplication, not replication (within one NBU domain, not across domains).
I think your problem is the lack of some switches, such as -rcn -slp_name -target_pwd.
For -rcn the number needs to be original source copy number plus 101.
I have just tested that a non-SLP-managed backup image can be manually (push) replicated from one NetBackup domain to another. I did a backup to an Adv.Disk storage unit (copy 1), then manually duplicated that one image to MSDP (copy 2), then expired copy 1, then manually replicated copy 2 to remote site. The command syntax that I used was :
nbreplicate -Bidfile mylist.bid -cn 2 -rcn 103 -slp_name MY_SLP_AT_REMOTE -target_sts myremote.mysite.com -target_user root -target_pwd blahblah
Tested using source NetBackup Appliance v2.7.3 replicating to NetBackup Appliance v3.1.1.
