Backup Exec 2012 - Dedup folders steps creation.

Where can I find the steps to use the "Dedpulication" feature for Backup Exec 2012? I looked at the "Admin" guide bue I cannot seem to find where this is detailed clearly.

 

Thanks for your help!

Admin guide pg 749 onwards

Admin guide pg 749 onwards would list details about the DeDupe option in this order -

About the Dedupe option...requirements..installing the option...creating the Dedupe folder...backup/restore etc...

What sort of info are you looking for explicitly ?

I had reviewed those documents already, but found that it was a mistake at my end. The solution I needed to implement was to rerun the installation software again and include the "Deduplication" feature. :'(

 I had missed it during the first install and expected to see an option when viewing the application to enabel it.

 I do have an additional requirement but not sure if I need to open a new post. Please let me know what you think:

* Can Backup Exec use NetApp storage as a deduplication storage location to dedup data? BU 2010 needed (Direct Attached Storage) but wondering if 2012 is more flexible now.

* Also, if BU 2012 can be used to deduplicate data and the data its backing up is stored on a NetApp filer. Is it best to use BU Exec 2012 to deduplicate the data or use NetApp deduplication functionality instead.

* Do you have BU 2012 deduplication rates, or know where it can be found?

 

Please advise and thanks for your help!
