Hello,

 

I am trying to add an extended retention on aws Storage policy (2 Windows Media Agents with dedup database)

 

When I click on validate, I have this message. 

 

Then,I went to the storage policy to create a new copy, but the aws GDP Storage pool doesn’t appear. Any idea ? I see only on premises Storage pools 

 

 

Thanks !

You cannot associate the secondary copy to the AWS storage pool as the primary copy is already associated to this AWS storage pool. You’ll have to create first a second AWS storage pool.

Hello,

@Ledoesp

actually I have an Aws storage pool with 2 media agents, each MA with 1 dedup database, do you mean that for each extended retention period I want, I need to create a new storage pool and also new dedup DB ?

Greetings @Bloopa,

Or you apply the extended retention to the primary copy (and you get the warning about the consequences with DDB size) or you create a secondary copy to store the extended retention jobs. If you go for creating the secondary copy, yes, you have to define another deduplicated storage pool.
