Removing a DR Series system from GlobalView

When you remove a DR Series system from GlobalView on one system, it does not remove it from any other GlobalViews to which you may have added it on other systems.

To remove a DR Series system from GlobalView, complete the following steps:

2.
On the GlobalView page, in the appliance list, click the Delete icon next to the system you want to delete.
3.
Click OK to confirm.

Configuring and using Rapid NFS and Rapid CIFS

Configuring and using Rapid NFS and Rapid CIFS

Rapid NFS and Rapid CIFS enable write operation acceleration on clients that use NFS and CIFS file system protocols. Similar to OST and RDS, these accelerators allow for better coordination and integration between DR Series system backup, restore, and optimized duplication operations with Data Management Applications (DMAs) such as CommVault, EMC Networker, and Tivoli Storage Manager. For the current list of supported DMAs, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide.

Rapid NFS is a new client file system type that ensures that only unique data is written to the DR Series system. It uses user space components and file system in user space (FUSE) to accomplish this. Metadata operations such as file creates and permission changes go through the standard NFS protocol, whereas write operations go through Rapid NFS.

Rapid CIFS is a Windows-certified filter driver that also ensures that only unique data is written to the DR Series system. All chunking and hash computations are done at the client level.

NOTE: The supported DMAs listed in the DR Series System Interoperability Guide are the DMAs that have been tested and qualified with Rapid NFS and Rapid CIFS. You can use Rapid NFS and Rapid CIFS with other DMAs (such as Veritas products), but those products have not been tested and qualified with Rapid NFS or Rapid CIFS.

Rapid NFS and Rapid CIFS benefits

Best practices: Rapid NFS

This topic introduces some recommended best practices for using Rapid NFS operations with the DR Series system.

If you are using a DMA that supports a marker, should explicitly set it. Your containers should have the marker type of None until you set the marker using the Mount command on the client (after installing the Rapid NFS plug-in). For existing containers, re-set the marker by doing the following:
Rapid NFS is available on a DR Series system and a client with a minimum of 4 CPU cores running at a minimum of 4 GHz cumulative processing power and 2 GB memory. Kernels must be 2.6.14 or later. For a list of supported operating systems, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide. If you update your operating system, you must update your Rapid NFS plug-in as well. Updates are available on the Support site as well as within the GUI on the Clients page.
