Is it possible to Configure Backup Exec 2012 Appliance 3600 as a OpenStorage?

Hi guys!

I need your help.

 

I have here 2 Backup Exec 2012 servers:

-BE1 -  (Appliance 3600)

-BE2  - Windows 2008 Stardard R2

 

 I performed two Test Scenarios:

 

TEST1 Scenario: Configure BE2 as an OpenStorage from BE1 (Appliance)

RESULT: BE2 successfully configured as OpenStorage

 

TEST2 Scenario: Configure BE1 (Appliance) as an OpenStorage from BE2

RESULT: Unable to create a OpenStorage with this message

"Unable to connect to the Openstorage device. Ensure that the network is properly configured between
the device and the Backup Exec server
"

 

 

I am very sure that both servers are connected. 

So I want to ask if it is possible to configure BE 2012 Appliance 3600 as an OpenStorage.

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

from what I know and have read, the appliance is simply a dedupe store, and doesn't support being configured as OpenStorage.

Thanks!

Thanks craig!

Do you have any documents which prove that we cannot configure the appliance as openstorage?

Hi Jaime,   Check the link

Hi Jaime,

 

Check the link below for the BE 2012 HCL, specifically the section on the 3600 Appliance. It doesn't mention anything about the 3600 appliance being capable of OpenStorage, but it does mention the NBU 5000/5020 appliance as being supported.

Hi Craig,

 

Do you know how to set a server from MBES to CAS?

 

I want to untick the MBES option and tick the CAS option, but the 2 options cannot be tick or untick.

 

 

Thanks!
