This issue has been solved. See solution.

I try to share Deduplication folder on MMS to CASO server, but when i pres "OK" in Configure Device assistent i get "Server is alredy exist". In the wizard i specify Open Storage device, than dns name of MMS server and PureDisk as type. What is wrong?

Maybe i should not configure OST, just make duplication from one Deduplication folder to another? Will optimized duplication be working?

You can share Open storage device. Can you elaborate more on this?

Did you check the Sharing options. Is your CAS server (on which you are trying to share MMS dedupe folder) already checked in Sharing options?

To add deduplication folder connected to MMS server to CAS server, i have two different choices:

1. Share deduplication folder.

2. Connect deduplication folder connected to MMS to CAS via OST.

The second preferred, cause in such case Optimized Duplication will work.

I have already check all possible combinations, and see that is only possible way to use OST with media servers is to move Device and media, to MMS server, if it is located on CAS server than you always will get "Server already exists"
