A few question on dedupe:
1) What is the client requirement to use client-side dedupe? e.g. can a client w/ 2GB RAM do client-side dedupe? Do I need to set anything on the Remote Agent on the client?
2) I ran the same full backup to dedupe storage job two times in a roll. It is a files backup job. The 1st job took 11 min and 2nd job took 18 min. Isn't that dedupe supposed to copy the changed block only? I would expect the 2nd job complete very quickly but it is not? Am I mis-understanding the concept here? (but differential job seems very quick sometimes)
3) Should I enable Advanced Open File for dedupe backup jobs? For File/SQL/Exchange? Will it affect performance?
I'm new to this dedupe thing and trying to understand more.
