SLP duplication jobs cancelled

Hi,

Issue: 1) SLP duplication jobs cancelled.   (2) How to assign Same media server another pure disk.

 

Currently our SLP (Duplication) jobs schedule Saturday Night to Monday Morning, but during this period SLP replication not completed.

So I have tried to change the SLP schedule every day night (8:00PM to 4:00AM)   (Asume that running SLP jobs will suspend and same will continue after that).

After changes pending/running SLP jobs are cancelled not suspended.

Our Setup:

All is Pure disk storage.

We are not using any Tape drive.

Offsite also storage disk.

Network bandwidth is low, so try to schedue in every night.

Windows 2008 R2 (Master server)

Windows 2008 (Media Server)

One Media server 15TB space allocated (Pure disk) now 5TB another disk partition is free (not in used)

 

As per symantec document:

NetBackup 7.6 Administrator's Guide I found the reason why the SLP cancels instead of suspend the image when the backup window closes.

As we are not using storage units of type “AdvancedDisk” or “Media Manager”, but “PureDisk”, the SLP cannot suspend the image and will proceed with one of the options we can select in “window closure preference”:

 

Please suggest...

1) How configure the replication SLP for every night.

2) How allocate another remaining disk (5TB) via Pure disk (It's not allowed).

 

Regards,

Atharava

To answer your questions:

1) You need to escalate bandwidth issues to your management. 
If you have xxx amount of data to be replicated to another site in x hours, you need to do the maths to calculate the required bandwidth. No way around that.

2) MSDP pool can only exist on one disk/partition.
The only way to increase space is to expand the storage at hardware level. 
See Resizing the MSDP storage partition in Chapter 8 of NetBackup Deduplication Guide

I have moved this discussion

I have moved this discussion to the NetBackup forum as this is not related to separate PureDisk product but rather seems to be PureDisk or MSDP within NetBackup.

@ Atharva, if you continue to

@ Atharva, if you continue to release/stop images from being processed by SLP for duplications, then you will have to manually run the duplication yourself.

If the slp dup jobs failed with 196, check the output of nbstlutuil report, to know which SLP is still active/suspended and how much backlog is accumulated for that corresponding slp too. This command should be run on the master server

Thanks.
