Media servers and policies containing multiple targets
So here's the thing:
We have media servers with DD Boost installed for Data Domain, we have MUST_USE_LOCAL set on the server the have run the nbemmcmd that tells media servers to back themselves up. This is to ensure that DD Boost de-dupe at source takes place.
But what happens in the case of a job policy that includes two or more different servers being backed up? It is not clear to me whether a backup job/policy is handled by one media server in its entirety, or if a different media server will take over in the case of a media server that's configured as above to back itself up.
We are migrating from Data Protector, and some of the jobs configured on that are based on backups of specific environments and may contain 3, 4 or 5 different servers being backed up by on job or policy. It is easy enough when one policy backs up one server, but how do media servers react when the policy contains multiple target servers?
