I am just implementing BE2012 Media server. It is licenced for the required agents and De-Duplication. I'm not quite sure on how backups are configured when using De-Dupe. I've configured normal jobs using BE before but never used De-Dupe. I'm sure it's just a terminology thing so please humour me.
The server has 16GB RAM & 2 local drives. C:\ (Operating System) and D:\ (RAID 1). The D drive has around 1TB of storage space. There is also a 7TB iSCSI drive from a dedicated NAS device (2 Gbps LACP), call this E:\.
Within Backup Exec I am setting up the storage but am unsure as to how the D:\ (1TB) drive and the E:\ (7TB) should be setup.
Which should I use as the De-Dupe drive, larger or smaller?
Do I configure all the backup jobs as De-DeDupe backups using the De-Dupe drive? Should I be avoiding normal type backups?
Thanks in Advance!
