Best place to start is with MSDP Admin Guide: http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3657

Go through this doc as well: 
NBU Deduplication: Additional Info  http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH77575

Media server support for MSDP can be found in NBU 7.5 OS compatibility list: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76648

Planning is key to successful MSDP implimentation.

Please take you time to go through these docs, then let us know if you have more questions.

Configuration steps are detailed in Chapter 5 of Deduplication Guide - just prepare the machine with enough  resource and start "Configure Disk Storage Servers" wizard in GUI.

Hi Marianne,

 

Not to highjack this post but maybe you can help. I do have a case open with support.

 

Anyhow when trying to create MSDP again (Original MSDP was blown away by our Unix Admins when resizing the disk, there were no images yet)

I get the error:

Adding credentials for server xxxx  failed (Server is Shutdown)

 

I have reinstalled NBU 7.5 and patched to 7.5.0.5 and all services are up, the Mount is present and the root pasword is the same that was used in the previous MSDP configuration and also the same password that is being used on another MSDP.

 

OS

2.6.18-348.3.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Mar 5 13:19:32 EST 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

 

Configuration:
 
Storage server type: Media Server Deduplication Pool
Storage server name: prod-nbu-pdm01.uson.usoncology.int
User name: root
Storage path: /msdp
Database path: /var/msdp_db
Network interface: Use Default
Deduplication load balancing 
media servers: prod-nbu-pdm02. (FQDN)
