In this Knowledge Sharing article, Alessio Casagrande discusses a bug present in all versions of EMC Backup and Recovery (EBR) appliance and offers a workaround to bypass this important bug.
Alessio has installed EBR appliance into an enterprise environment with a large number of machines and explains how his workaround solution is fundamental to perform a clone restore. However, a problem can arise with more machines as the steps required to delete saveset can cause loss of time. Alessio found that for every saveset, 10 seconds can be lost for each deleted primary copy. His article chronicles how he was able to reduce this delay with a script that deletes the last primary copy, enabling deletion of all primary saveset for all machines in a specific date in less time.
