We are using windows servers as Backup media agents , I want to decommission one of the media agent “x” which is part of 3 libraries and dedupe storage policies. I have disbaled the mount paths on all 3 libraries associated with media agent “x” , view content shows that there is no data present on the mount path . When I try to delete the mount path associated with media agent ‘x’ faces below error -
Mount path is used by a Deduplication database.The data on this mount path used by the deduplication DB could be referenced by other backup jobs. The mount path can be deleted only when all associated storage policies/copies with deduplication enabled are deleted. See Deduplication DBs tab on the property dialog of this mount path to view the list of DDBs and storage policies/copies.
if I unshare the mount paths associated with media agent ‘x’ with other mouth paths of the same library and remove media agent ‘x’ from data paths tab in dedupe storage policy , the restore jobs starts failing. Some of my backup jobs in one of the library has infinite retention . Can anyone suggest how to gracefully delete a mount path from existing library and dedupe storage policy without affecting restore and backup operations .
