Best practices: Rapid CIFS

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

Setting client-side optimization

Client-side optimization (also known as client-side deduplication) is a process that can contribute to saving time performing backup operations and reducing the data transfer overhead on the network.

To configure dedupe/passthrough before the client makes a connection, you need to use the DR Series system command line interface (CLI).

You can turn client-side optimization On or Off by using the CLI commands, rda --update_client --name --mode. For more information about DR Series system CLI commands, see the DR Series System Command Line Reference Guide.

Installing the Rapid NFS plug-in

The DR Rapid NFS plug-in must be installed on to the media server type you choose (for supported operating systems and DMAs, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide). The plug-in software enables integration between DR Series system data storage operations and the supported data management applications (DMAs). Before you install, make sure you adhere to the Best Practices covered in another topic in this chapter.

The plug-in must be installed on the designated Linux-based media server in the following directory, /usr/openv/lib/. The plug-in is installed using a self-extracting installer that installs the Rapid NFS plug-in and all of its related components. The installer supports the following modes, with the default being Help (-h):

You can download the plug-in installer from the Quest website:

Go to support.quest.com/dr-series, select your specific DR Series model, and then navigate to Software Downloads.

After it is downloaded, follow the steps that follow to run the Plug-In Installer to install the plug-in on your designated Linux-based media server.

1.
Download QuestRapidNFS-xxxxx-xxxxx-x86_64.bin.gz from the website, as detailed previously.

If you are using a DMA that supports a marker, set the marker by using -o in the mount command. For example, if you wanted to set the CommVault marker (cv):

To ensure that the plug-in is running successfully, check the log file at: tail -f /var/log/oca/rdnfs.log.

Installing the Rapid CIFS plug-in

The DR Rapid CIFS plug-in must be installed on to the media server type you choose (for supported operating systems and DMAs, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide). The plug-in software enables integration between DR Series system data storage operations and the supported data management applications (DMAs). Before you install, make sure you adhere to the Best Practices covered in another topic in this chapter.

You can download the plug-in installer from the Quest website as follows

After it is downloaded, follow the steps below to run the plug-in installer to install the plug-in on your designated media server.

3.
Open a command prompt with the “Run as Administrator” option selected. To do this using the Windows Start menu, click Start → All Programs → Accessories. Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.
4.
Run QuestRapidCIFS-xxxxx.msi.

To ensure that the plug-in is running successfully, check the Windows Event log file.
