Refreshing RMC-V copies

RMC-V manages the copy life cycle based on the rules of the assigned copy policies. RMC uses Prevent Deletion Until and Auto Delete After to manage the life cycle. If for some reason the state of copies in RMC or storage device is not matching with the details or status displayed in RMC-V, then use the refresh option to bring the copies to the correct state.

Refresh can be performed at the VM or datastore level. Refresh can also be performed at the copy level. The refresh option at the VM or datastore level fetches details about all copies and clones from the storage device and then updates the catalogue of RMC-V.


Perform the refresh copies operation only if required.
