ARS breaks target protection options

ARS breaks target protection options

We want replica objects imported into a foreign cell via ARS to have a longer protection than the original source objects.  Although you can give target objects longer protection in a traditional object copy job or replication job without ARS, the target protection options are dimmed after enabling ARS (aka "Replicate to a foreign cell").  We need the ARS-imported objects in the foreign cell to have permanent protection even though the source objects in the local cell have 7-week protection.

Thanks, Chid Holmes

Hello @Chid,

I agree, there should be improvements in this area.

What you can do as a workaround today is to configure the protection suitable for the target cell and change it on the source after a successful replication. You can see those options are available in ARS.
