Seeding Data Domains and Netbackup OST
We are in the process of implementing our first OST based Storage Units using Data Domains and Storage Life Cycle Policies. I have the 2 DD's all configured and working in the test lab and everything is running great. Here is the basic config
Media server A: Solaris sparc - NBU 220.127.116.11
Media server B: Wintel - NBU 18.104.22.168
As I mentioned we are going to use SLP to make backups to the Remote DD and replicate back to the Local DD and then off load to tape. Due to the large amount of data to be backed up at the remote site we are looking to ship both DD's and Media Server B to do the inital backup and then ship the Local_DD back and attach to Media server A.
My question is whether or not this will work. Im almost thinking that I will have to send both Media Server A and B to the remote site for seeding (along with both DD's) and then bring back Media Server A and Local_DD. Any thoughts? Id like to avoid an Image Import due to the amount of time that would take.
Let me know what you think. Any thoughts at all are apprecieated
