As today the Pure Disk Is going to End of Support , so i would like to share the Migration steps if any one want to migrate from Puredisk Server to Netbackup Deduplication Option, As we are also migrating these days Pure Disk to Netbackup Dedupe Media Server.
Following are the steps
1. Restore data for client to a Local machine.
2. Backup this data to Netbackup using one new policy.
3. Configure seeding using this new policy & take backup of Client over WAN.
This will cause to find that client's data in MSDP storage cache. Hence Client will not send exisiting Data over WAN & first backup will finish faster. It will take low bandwidth.
4. Once first backup is successful then remove seeding settings .
