With media server dedupe, you have a choice between client-side dedupe and media server-side dedupe.

You can find details in NBU Deduplication Guide  http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3657

The data de-duplication can take place at the client (client side de-duplication) or at the media server (media server duplication). It a configurable option in Netbackup.

Update:Too late ...

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

If I look at your comment in your Data Domain post https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/dat...
it seems that you are confusing OST dedupe with MSDP?

Please DON't! They are totally different!

@YogesH:OK then where it goes from storage unit.

Canu explain further.We have data domain in our environment and disk pool.

Data Domain is OST and NOT MSDP!
You have asked MANY questions about dedupe on this forum.
We have explained the differences to you and have also referred you to the documentation.
The docs contain pictures that explains the physical and logical components and process/data flow.
