Applies to

  • XCP 1.9.3
  • Attempting to migrate data that already been partially migrated using isync command &  -exclude flag 

Answer

  • xcp isync scans the destination in order to compare it with the source
  • xcp copy returns a warning if there is content on the destination but will not process it further
  • -exclude flag are relevant to the source

That will make xcp copy faster when large sets of data have been excluded with the -exclude option
