Creating a disk volume has nothing to do with NBU. You need to ask this in an OS forum for the media server where you want to create disk volume.

When you have a disk volume that can be seen at OS level, you can add it to NBU.

We have referred you to the NBU Shared Storage Guide on MANY occations.

See Chapter 1:  AdvancedDisk option.

Disk volume needs to be created on the media server or on the Storage server?

It would be nice if you mentioned the TYPE in your opening post. There are many types of Disk Storage in NBU.

We know you are using DataDomain in production. This means volumes, Storage Server, disk pools have all been set up. We thought you wanted to create another type of DSU.

So, is this another LETS SUPPOSE question?

If you want know how to create disk volumes on DD, have a look at your DD documentation.

We have referred you many times in the past to DD documentation site: https://my.datadomain.com/

My first post is still valid:
Creating disk volumes has NOTHING to do with NBU. 

Add disk volumes to NBU once they have been created at OS or Storage Server level.

If you keep on posting DD questions, I WILL delete them!

This is a NETBACKUP forum, NOT EMC or DataDomain.
