Hi Arun,

Thanks for your questions. On this forum, we are focusing on questions related to NBU appliances. I would encourage you to post your Data Domain related questions on the EMC forums.

Regards,

Mayur

Please go through NBU Appliance and Dedupe documentation.

You have asked the exact same questions previously about Advanced Disk and MSDP.

Appliance is MSDP winthout having to install OS, add storage, install NBU, config MSDP, etc....
