Initial Duplication Between CASO and MMS

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I'm looking for a solution for duplication jobs between deduplication folders on our CASO and MMS in backup exec 2010 R3.  The duplication works, however we want to start duplicating some of our SQL backups which are in the 400-500 GB range, and with a 10Mbps WAN connection this really isn't possible.  On top of the already limited WAN speed, we've set the optimized-duplication max bandwidth to 300 KB/s to keep this process from saturating too much of our connection.

Is there a way that we can export/copy backup data to an external drive and transport it manually over to the other server to get the initial duplication process covered?  As I understand it, once the initial job has run the subsequent duplication jobs will only send unique data across the WAN connection.  With one of our SQL jobs, the backed up data is ~400 GB, however the unique data is only about 5 GB so this is a much more managable amount to send from one site to the other. 

I've been looking through the forums for other solutions but haven't come across any, I'll keep looking and post back here if I find anything out.  Any help in the meantime is very appreciated.
