Symptoms:

   

   An administrator may want to Increase/Reduce the Journal Hard Size Limit when replicating to a public cloud.
     

 


Cause:

   

   The Journal hard size limit on public cloud is being allocated due to usage and the journal needs.
The default maximum size a Journal can grow to is 1048576MB.    

 


Solution:

       

In order to change the maximum size a Journal can grow to, please follow these steps: (The size is an example of 2TB.)
1) Login to the ZCA machine.
2) Stop the ZVM services.
3) Open the tweaks.txt file found in \Program Files\Zerto\Zerto Virtual Replication\.
4) Edit the file so you provide the below tweak on its own line:
t_overrideJournalHardLimitValueInMb=2097152
t_vraSizeOfAwsJournalMB=2097152
t_initialJournalLimitInMB=2097152
5) Save the file.
6) Start the ZVM services.
7) Restart the Protected VRA

Notes:
1. All values should be in MB (Megabytes)
2. The maximum value is uint 32 = 4294967295 Megabytes (MB) = 4,194,306 Gigabytes (GB)
