nbdevconfig (Synthetic full backups)

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm attempting to enable synthetic backups in my environment. I'm trying to run the following command on my master server for each of my disk pools.

nbdevconfig -changedp -dp US_STI_DADO_NSIDDO1_LSU02_NETBPNY2P04 -stype DataDomain -setattribute OptimizedImage

But I'm getting the following message when I run the command.

DSM was unable to find the following disk pool: US_STI_DADO_NSIDDO1_LSU02_NETBPNY2P04(DataDomain)@nmadep11.zit.commerzbank.com
Unable to update
failed to change disk pool, invalid command parameter

Rather copy & paste the name. You made a typo error.

Your DP name:
US_STI_DADO_NSIDDO1_LSU02_NETBPNY2P04
US_STI_DADO_NSIDD01_LSU02_NETBPNY2P04
Actual name above.

See the mistake?
