HI All,

One of Our client has purchansed 2 Dell DR4000 Devices ( ver 1.1 ) . We use Netbackup in Windows 2008 master server ( Media server is also same ) .

We want to use one device for primary and second for Replication . Here are the 2 options i tried .

1. Configure backup on to DellDR4000-1 & Replicate it to Dell DR4000-2 ..We are trying to replicate at OST container level by using Storage feature , which is not allowing us to create replication . Gives error like " Could not configure both OST & Relication on container . ..

2. Trying to configure snapshot backup to Dell Dr4000-1 and replicate it to Dell Dr4000-2 by using netbackup . But I am unable to set the option " with DellDr4000 as it is not showing any available disk's when i select relication source or target with OST ( creating diskpool) .

I am new to Netbackup . Please help me in this .. how can we configure replication to 2nd device .

Why dont you use SLP for this replication..  try SLP

create 2 storage usits one for primary backup and another for replication and create SLP for both..

and also check the replication director in netbackup

The generic NBU OST manual can be downloaded here:

For Dell-specific configuration with NetBackup, find out from Dell if they have a Dell for NBU config guide.
I know that other OST vendors such as Quantum and DataDomain have such documents.
