Configuring the DR Series system with the Backup Exec GUI

Backup Exec only supports the use of its own graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring the DR Series system. There is no supported Backup Exec command-line interface (CLI) for using Backup Exec 2010 version.

Optimizing duplication between DR Series systems using Backup Exec

Backup Exec can replicate backups between two DR Series systems that are part of a defined source and target replication pair. This process uses the deduplication and replication features of the DR Series system via RDA with OST.

When the data is in a deduplicated format (in an optimized form), only new or unique data is copied between the two DR Series systems. Because the duplication job is initiated by Backup Exec, there are two entries in its catalog: one entry is for the source file, while the other entry is for the target file. The backup administrator can restore backup data from either appliance in case of data loss or disaster.

To optimize duplication between DR Series systems, create an additional OST device that points to the target DR Series system, and complete the following steps:

1.
Launch the Backup Exec Administrator console, select the Devices tab, and right-click the target DR Series system.
2.
Select Add OpenStorage in the drop-down list.
The Add OpenStorage Device page is displayed
3.
Configure the Add OpenStorage Device page with the following information:
Server—enter the host name or IP address of the DR Series system.
Logon account—select the account from the drop-down list (or click ... and browse to the account location), which has credentials for accessing the DR Series system.
Server type—select the type of server from the drop-down list (DELL or QUEST).
Logical storage unit—enter the name of the logical storage unit (LSU), also known as a DR Series system container, to use.
4.
Click Yes in response to the prompt if you want to make the new device the default destination for new jobs.
5.
Close the Add OpenStorage Device page.
6.
Click the Job Setup tab.
7.
In the left navigation pane, select Backup Tasks, and click New job to duplicate backup sets.
The New Job to Duplicate Backup Sets page is displayed.
8.
Select Duplicate existing backup sets, and click OK.
9.
Click the View by Resource tab in the Selections page, and select the dataset you want copied.
10.
In the left navigation pane, select Destination, and select Device and Media.
11.
In Device, select the destination device from the drop-down list (that was created in this procedure), and click Run Now to start the replication operation between the two DR Series systems.
12.
Click the Job Monitor tab to view the progress of the replication operation you created.
