we have 2 nodes for 1 cluster
the problem is last week there were more than tb;s of backup however this week full backup was lesser than last week in gbs
We have configured the nodes like this
DFSR in a different policy
Drive paths in single policy
How is DFSR policy configured?
What is in Backup Selection?
Ensure that all DFSR data is selected in SCC path.
What is in Clients tab?
Virtual hostname should be selected, not nodename(s)
Yes we are taking node level backup
Backup selection for dfsr policy
Shadow Copy Components:\User Data\Distributed File System Replication\DfsrReplicatedFolders
For the other policy in which we are taking per drive basis backup
Client name for DFSR policy should NOT be the nodename.
I've been trying to tell you that the client name should be the Virtual hostname associated with the Cluster Group....
If the nodename is used in DFSR policy, you will you or NetBackup know when a failover has taken place and that backup should be taken from another node?
This is why we cluster applications and why a Virtual IP and Hostname is assigned to the cluster. When failover happens, the Virtual IP and hostname also fails over to the new node and end users or applications can still access the clustered data with the same hostname/IP.
Both the nodes are active in the cluster I checked it with wintel
few drives are assigned to Node 1 , others on Node 2
