Operational issues with Vaulting Storage migrator files

Files migrated by Storage Migrator are moved to secondary storage, and a pointer to each file remains in the file system. Consequently, a regular backup of the file system saves only the file pointer information. If Vault duplicates those files, only the file pointer information is vaulted. To ensure that the actual file is vaulted, you should also vault a copy of the Storage Migrator media.


Veritas Storage Migrator (VSM) 6.5 is the final release of the product and is not supported in NetBackup 7.0. However, VSM is supported for the life of NetBackup 6.5 and all NetBackup 6.5 release updates. This means only NetBackup 6.5 GA and 6.5.x media servers support VSM media and this version of Vault will manage those media. Starting with the next major release of NetBackup, Vault will no longer support VSM media eject and report functionality.
