how to create Dedupe Storage Locations using DLO

Hello,

we installed  the DLO administrator and dedup server on same Machine as mentioned in below link  , page no.24 , option no.2.

http://kbdownload.symantec.com/resources/sites/BUSINESS/content/live/DOCUMENTATION/6000/DOC6413/en_US/DLOAdminGuide_EN.pdf?__gda__=1404364409_85ff45cfe8c9e0a12e942d3422786b6d

 

 

1) We create a profile with dedup enable

2) click dedup server --> manage --> create a storage pool .

3) now trying to create a dedup storage location  , I am trying to give path but it is failed to taken.

 

How to give the path when we CREATE file system on secondary storage with CIFS share  ???

I am also trying to give local path but it is also failed.

By same credentials, I mean

By same credentials, I mean the same Administrator account is to be used for the DLO Administration and the SQL service.

Secondly, if you are using hs01 as the account for the services, this same account will not work when configuring the DeDupe Storage Location.

Configuring DeDupe Server

Hello VJware,

I was already checked this links earlier and admin guide too. As prcedure mentioned there  we followed it in third tird tab " Dedupe Storage Locations" there is option of giving path  so we passed there our filesystem path but it is not found that on networker still that filesystem is accessible from windows server where DLO is installed.

 

we used two different scenario's  in which 

1) secondary storage is also the part of AD (snap shot 1)

2) Secondary storage is not the part of AD (snap shot 2)

in both cases storage unit is not createds.

Did you create a new

Did you create a new non-admin user specific for creating & managing the DeDupe storage location ?

The section "About Dedupe Storage Locations" in the Admin Guide explains what type of account is required for creating the DeDupe Storage.

Hello VJware ,

 

we did the same but we are getting the error "the specified user  doesnt have write acess on the path specified  " and this user has been created on DLO SERVER .

We also checked a link :

As a test, if you log in to the DLO server using this newly created account and try to access the path via UNC (which will be used as a DeDupe location), are you able to create, modify and remove files ?

Hello VJware ,

 

on login the machine with  that user I am getting an error on opening the console of DLO Administrator. please check the details.
 I am trying to change log on account in DLO  Administrator but getting an error.

 

 

Can I change the logon account in services ... services.msc ???

Ideally, the DLO services

Ideally, the DLO services should be running under the account which was used to install DLO. Ensure the DLO Admininstration & the SQL instance run using the same credentials. The DLO Maintenance service must be running under a local system account.

The DLO Administrator must have proper administrator permissions on the DLO server, at the NUDF Storage and at the SQL DB as well.

hello VJware pls check the
