Netbackup 188.8.131.52 - Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise dedupe media server
With one master controlling multiple media servers (all with same OS as Master):
This is a brand new configuration. No policies are created, and I'm just starting the configuration. The end goal is one master controls 12 media servers that runs de-dupe and pushes images to tape for storage. All media servers are being presented a drive with local drive letter that is 3 TB in size from iSCSI Initiator via SAN.
I ran the 'configure disk storage servers" wizard under media / device management, and added an MSDP pool that is controlled by media server 1.
I did not finish / complete the wizard for defining disk pools. My question is: after adding this MSDP pool, am I supposed to see this in the Master admin console? In the Media Server admin console? I cant see it anywhere, and it finisihed successfully. Do I need to define a disk pool before this is visible?
If each media server will have a tape drive attached, is this set up in the Master admin console? Seems the media server admin console is basically blank, except for listing my Master server.
If I'm only using the new du-dupe pool to run de-dupe, does it still need to be a part of disk storage, as the only technical storage will be on tape?
