Enable Deduplication on NetBackup 7.5

We have got NetBackup running on Windows Server 2008 and currently backing up data on SAN Storage.

I want to enable deduplication on it.

Could you please provide me the best practice procedure to do so ?

Where the deduplication should be enabled on client or Server level and how it will be reflected on SAN storage?

Please adivse



  • No. You cannot use the same lun for Basic disk and MSDP. As per my post of 19 May: You cannot convert Basic Disk to dedupe. You will need to duplicate everything to tape (or other storage), expire all backups on the disk, double-check that the disk is clean, then configure dedupe, provided that the server and storage match requirements and you have dedupe license.
