Quick question to the community -
We are troubleshooting some Linux XFS SOBR issues. I know for ReFS you need to use the Data Locality policy for the Fast Cloning and wondered would the same apply to XFS?
I would think that it does but on the off chance I can change it to the Performance policy it might help us get over the hump for our issues and then I can swap it back.
These repos are NOT immutable at the moment either.

I think this statement answers my own question -
- Fast Clone requires that source and destination files are stored on the same ReFS volume. If you add a backup repository with Fast Clone support as an extent to a scale-out backup repository, make sure that you enable the Data Locality placement policy for this scale-out backup repository. If backup files are stored on different extents, Fast Clone will not be used.

Under the Limitations section. But I figured it could be different with XFS Linux possibly.
