Hi,

Whats the best practise evacuate an extent with immutalbe backups?

I need to evacuate an extent from an object lock repo with 7 days immutalbe backups.

I put the extent in maintenance and started the evacuation. What happens with die immutalbe backups? They will stay on the locked repo?

If the immutability period hasn’t expired, nothing can happen with them.

 

You can also only have one capacity tier extent in a SOBR as of v11 (changing in v12), so you can’t evacuate from capacity tier at all, only from performance tier.

It is a performance tier. its a local linux repo. so if i evacuate 7 days of immutalbe will stay on the extent i guess.

Ahh I got confused when I saw the magic word “object”, yep if the performance tier extent’s backups haven’t had their immutability flag expire or manually removed,they aren’t going anywhere!

When I remember right, backup files get copied, but not moved - because of immutability.

Do you not require also another extent with the immutable attribute as well to evacuate?  If the other extents were not I don't see how you can move them unless they copy as Wolfgang noted.
