To verify your environment
To verify your release level, perform the following steps:
The hardware must be suited for both I/O and for computation. PDDO increases the computational load on a media server because it calculates data deduplication. Verify your media server’s hardware capabilities to ensure an optimal PDDO configuration.
Make sure that you can perform regular file backups from a client and restores to a client. Install a regular PureDisk backup and restore agent on a client computer to perform this test. Do not install the regular backup and restore client on the media server. Symantec does not support both a backup and restore client and a PDDO plug-in on one NetBackup media server.
