HDID documentation says HDID does not set retention on HCP objects.Would like to know what is the significance of retention which we set in batch backup operation as a part of Policy?
The documentation says:
HDID does not set a retention on HCP objects. When a tiered stream is no longer
referenced by any repository snapshots, the corresponding object will be deleted from
Basically we are not using the HCP retention capabilities any more. In the old implementation we treated the HCP as a write only system and the HCP took control of the deletion of objects by their retention value which we set.
With this implementation we use the repository retention value for HDID to decide when something should retire. If HDID decides the object is no longer needed for a snapshot then HDID will delete the object from the HCP.
