NBU 7.1 with EMC DataDomains replicating - config advice
I just inherited an nbu 7.1 server that has many policies with a variety of clients, Windows, Exchange, Unix, SQL, etc. The policies seem OK so far, I've used NBU a good amount, but not with disk based storage like this EMC DD.
I found some suggestions about doing client side dedup so less data is written to the DD, but then I read that when using the OST plugin which we are that the Dedup is done on the master server anyway so there's no need to do the client side dedup.
I do have a couple remote servers where I need to do the dedup at the client side because right now they are backed up with the terrible MS DPM product and that is just a disaster.
Does anyone have some good suggestions on whether anything "special" should be setup for this or do I just create the policies and let the master server and DD do the work?
