hi Angel, the above listed

hi Angel,

the above listed licences are not showing the dedup licences unless you miss to post it though you already have..

and could you post the all detail status of the job the is compleated...? does it the first job after enabling the client side dedup for BH server?

if it really trying to use the client side dedup.. in job detail status there should be a line some thing like below.

 Using OpenStorage client direct to backup from client xyz to abc

if you dont find the line similer to this in job details status.. it means that is it not using the client side dedup.. and needs to confim about the licences or configurations again.

if you see the lines simler to this in job detail status.. it is using the client side dedup and CR send is the only one that is send from the client.

 

Here again, This is the log

As you can see there is nothing related with OpenStorage client direct. So, would it be that we are able to dedupe data in MSDP (target dedupe) but not to dedupe in source because we need that license only for client-side deduplication?

 

There is not a separate

There is not a separate Accelerator license. Dedupe and Accelerator are included in Data Protection Optimization license. You did not mention this license in your post where you quoted licensed options?
Accepted Solution!

now its time to review your

now its time to review your lincences ..

as Marianne said, ... you did list the dedup license in your previous post where you listed your lincense options..

since its same lincencse for dedup and Accelerator, and you are saying that you are not able to select the Accelerator option.. it time to review your licenses and go for it as Marianne said...

Hi guys, Ok, it takes me long

Hi guys,

Ok, it takes me long time to understand the issue. When I was talking with my vendor always we thought in dedupe option. The budget was adjusted and I guess the vendor cut back this license. While we didn't have to backup remote site didn't have any issue. Our MDSP was deduping data in its storage, and this data was copied by LAN & SAN, so there was enough time to do it.

Furthermore, I saw

"scanned: 1490495656 KB, CR sent: 9239012 KB, CR sent over FC: 0 KB, dedup: 99.4%, cache hits: 827941 (6.7%), rebased: 163899 (1.3%)", 

client-side option available and I guessed dedupe was working (and licensed).

Well, I try to buy it next year if the budget allows me. At the moment I handle it without Acelerator. I have to optimize my WAN acelerator but this will be another post :D

Thanks a million @Ram, @Marianne & @sdo for all your support and time.

Regards.
