URGENT: Distcp -update -delete is not deleting files

avatar
Expert Contributor

Hello,


We are on CDP 7.1.7 SP1 and as per my understanding when DistCp is executed with below parameters, it does the following:

 

1. update: this will update the files in destination that have got modified at source

2. delete: this will delete the files in destination that exist in destination but not in source.

 

Apart feom above, it will copy over any new files at source that do not exist in destination.

 

While copy and update is happening, it does not delete the files instead duplicates them and hence, the data count at destination is double than the source.

 

Kindly help urgently as we are at the verge of initiating heavy data copy.

 

Thanks
