Disk or tape to Deduplication Disk Pool

Level 4

Hi Everyone,

I am wondering if there is a way I can duplicate images that I have stored on either disk or tape to a Dedup Pool?

Windows 2008 R2 Media and Master servers running Netbackup

Yes you can duplicate them but they will be deduplicated on the media server. Make sure to use a media server that has access to both devices or else the job will fail.

Do you know if it is the same command line to excute the task? Same as tape:

bpduplicate -backupid "Client_123456" -dstunit "Disk Pool" -cn X

I am using that and getting error:

The Media server has the tape connected directly as well as the Deduplication Disk Pool

Can you confirm if <-dstunit "Disk Pool"> mentioned is the Storage Unit and not the Disk Pool.

Also, status 24 i.e "socket write failed" can be caused due to n/w issue.

Can you follow the GUI method to duplicate the image through catalog search

Hope that helps.
