You can download following best practices from EMC:

Just register and you will have access. It is a fairly descriptive paper which I have found to be quite good.

Ask the EMC/DD guys for this doc (or newer version if possible):


It is not publicly available.  This guide explains how to install, configure, and use Data Domain OST with NBU 6.5. Only difference in 7.x is that the GUI can be used for most of the config.

OST basics are covered in NBU Shared Storage Guide .

Attached within is the DD guide. This will help you in big way. Since DD is not that common product, I usually refer to this guide in case of any queries.

This guide also list lot of notes which are important when you want to integrate it with NetBackup

Not that common of a product?  Last I read, greater than 60+% is what DD has in market share.  I'm NBU certified, but I know very well whats out there.  Now, perhaps your region is not that big for EMC.

There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."
