add support for GRT restore from OST devices.
this is a HUGE deal breaker for alot for customers!
staging is a no-go...
I believe it is up to the OST vendor to supply GRT support.
This is already offered by a number of OST vendors for NetBackup.
Search for Granular_Recovery in OST Storage Servers section in NetBackup 7 Hardware Compatibility List (HCL): http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76495
You may want to ask your vendor for BE roadmap info....
Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows
Handy NBU Links
hmm i really dont think so..
why is it then that no 3rd party OST devices is supported with BE2012 to do GRT restore without staging??
its only supported with symantecs own appliance.
read page 9 "Disk Targets" in BE2012 hcl - "Granular Restore Technology (GRT) support, per deduplication type"
