nsrstage vs Clone session.

Hello Guys,

Could you please share your thoughts and your experience with nsrstage?

I am currently using clone jobs to move the copy of the indexes from AFTD drive to Data Domain, because I don't have enough space on the AFTD to hold them for the whole retention period. After the indexes are copied I run one custom script to clean the indexes from the AFTD.

But I found that nsrstage is doing almost the same. So could you please share your thoughts, which option is better?

BR,

Ivo

Re: nsrstage vs Clone session.

In the 'old' times, the functionality was different:

   nsrclone was used to copy save sets

   nsrstage was the utility to migrate them

With the option 'nsrclone -m' staging could also be done with 'nsrclone'.

So EMC decided to stop development of 'nsrstage' and proceed with nsrclone, in general.

Hello.

Why you decided to kept your indexes backed up until your backup retention time expiration?. Why don't save index separatelly with a group with less retention policy? If you need to browse a non browsable backup, you can rebuild this index solely.

Just keep in mind that the connection to the CFI location will be fast enough - if not it will limit backup/recover throughput.
