Moving from full backup to deduplication
Hi all, I'm looking in to a solution for some of our backups. I'm running BUE 2010R3 and what I'm trying to do is: I have one Central Admin Server located in NYC and i have another Managed Media Server located in Reno. Right now the NYC server is handling a large backup some where in the area of 1.3TB to a NAS. I want to start doing a Deduplication of that data to Reno ( also has a NAS ) as a precaution in the event that we loose our NAS in NYC. the NYC server already has a deduplication folder on it so i know that i can't create another one, and there is so much data to move that just doing a deduplication job for the first time from NYC to Reno over the wire will just kill the network. so what i was thinking is i would do a full backup to removable media and ship the drive the backup was done on to Reno and move the data on to the NAS then recatalog the backup in to BUE for that location and then start doing Dedupliaction from that. Will that work? Or do i need to do something else?
Thanks for your help.
