Server 2012 and dedup

Hi all,

I have a Server 2012 running out of space. So I need a solution for next month till we go on ne storage. My Plan is to enable deduplication on Windows Server 2012.

My Backup System is Backup Exec 2012 14 Rev. 1798

As I know it is possible to backup with BE 2012 the dedup Data from Server 2012.

And it will re-dedup the data so my volume will running out of space. Is their any strategy to work with dedup volumes?

I mean it make no sense to use Windows Server 2012 dedup and BE 2012 as I see.

Thanks to all.

Hi,

It should be possible, but it would most likely rehydrate the data from the dedupe store on the Windows server before deduping it onto the backup server.



Thanks!​
