This issue has been solved. See solution.

Assuming we want to use the exagrid device as B2D storage how do I setup the dedup option so I could able to backup the file back to tape? Currently we run the test backup for B2D and it was successful. How do we run B2T? Our current setup not to use dedup option in BE because exagrid device handles the dedup. How are we going to setup the B2T job on BE? Thanks

I have branched this off as a separate discussion since it is not related to the original question


You just use a policy with a backup template for your B2D and a duplicate template for your B2T.

Note that as you are storing .bkf and .img files on your device, you might not get very good dedup ratio for your backups.  If you want to know why I say this, do some research on how dedup  in general works.
