I have a preposition job that's trying to copy a folder roughly 108GB in size (comprised of subfolders and files). I have the job running nightly and it always terminates after several hours copying about 27GB of data saying, "Preposition size limit was exceeded." I understand that we might be running into the reserved cache limit, and I have already set the preposition to use 100% of the cache.
My question is, if this job terminates after copying 27GB of the 108GB, what happens the next time this job starts on the next scheduled iteration the following night. Right now, it is set to "Files changed since last preposition." Will the preposition resume where it last Status:Terminated or will it start over since it wasn't Status:Complete task (ie. I'll never copy the full 108 GB since it keeps starting over)?
The versions of the two WAAS devices on each end:
Cisco Wide Area Application Services Software (WAAS)
I was digging into details and i got this in user guide:
Step 4 Ensure that the Status column shows Completed.
If this column shows a failure, look in the Reason column for an explanation that can help you troubleshoot why the preposition task failed. After resolving the issue, you can schedule the preposition task to run again now, or wait until the scheduled start time and check the status again later
So looking at this explanation it does seem that prepositioning should resume where it actually left off.

Thanks Finn, I think that I may have to break up the preposition into something smaller. This job has been running for several days, more than enough to add up to 108GB'; but if 25GB is all it can do, then I'll have to cut that down to something more manageable.
