Setting up Deduplication Option

Created: 26 Mar 2010 • Updated: 27 Sep 2010 | 1 comment

I'm having a problem setting up the Deduplication folder for Backup Exec 2010.  The media server is installed on a vSphere guest OS with Windows 2008 Enterprise R2.  I've attached the log with the error I'm receiving.  How do I correct this issue?

?column?

I assume that the pdregister.exe that fails for you is supposed to register the puredisk services into the registry. is the user your be-services run as a domain admin? does the user have full ntfs permission on the target device? do you see anything in the eventvwr.msc? (failed audit, applications, systemlog)
