NB 188.8.131.52 Windows Master - setting up deduplication
Hello. On a new Master install of NB, on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. Media server is same OS.
I'm going to have multiple media servers running deduplication, and one master controlling it.
The master / media server are talking to each other. That is all for configuration so far.
I have a basic disk from iSCSI Initiator that is sitting on my media server OS, with drive letter N:\
In running through the wizard on Master to create a new MSDP pool, I am following along until I get to this screen:
Storage Path: (once these properties are defined, they cannot be changed)
obviously, this warning seems pretty serious. If they don't want a drive letter, am I supposed to create a new directory on the N:\ ? what else would the storage path be? For example, n:\netbackup instead of n: ?
As for alternate path for deduplication database - would this point to the Master, as that's where the catalog information will be? There is no storage on my Master. I could give it another drive from my SAN if need be.
Just want to by crystal clear in setting this up.
Once this is done, do I set up my tape drive through the Master, or through the Media server in which it is connected / linked to?
