NBU 7.1 (Windows) backing up Solaris 10 ZFS
I am looking for some guidance and hope you can assist.
We have a NetBackup 188.8.131.52 for Windows environment using MSDP disk storage and a HP EML Tape Library. We want to backup a Solaris 10 Client using zpools and want to understand a few points.
- I understand that zpools can provide deduplicated storage?
- What happens during the backup with regards to the deduped data i.e. is it rehydrated from the zpool and backed up or does NetBackup capture the low-fat deduplicated image?
Essentially I want to be sure that we are backing up all the data rather than an unusable number of I & O's
Much appreciated as I have a slight crisis
