Best Practices: RDA with NetVault Backup and vRanger and the DR Series System

This topic introduces some recommended best practices for using DR Rapid 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.

Adding RDS devices in NetVault Backup

To add RDS devices in NetVault Backup:

In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration, and then, on the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Add Storage Devices.
Alternatively, in the navigation pane, click Manage Devices, and then click Add Device.
Select the RDA Device option, and click Next.
The Add RDA Device page is displayed.
In Host, enter the IP address or the system host name of the DR Series system.
In Username, enter backup_user.
NOTE: The Username, backup_user is case-sensitive. You can configure RDS containers only while logged on the DR Series system with username backup_user.
In Password, enter the password used to access the DR Series system.
In LSU, enter the name of the RDS container.
In Block size, enter the block size for data transfers. The block size is specified in bytes. The default block size is 131,072 bytes.
If the device is already added to another NetVault Backup Server with the same name, select the Force add check box. This option can be useful if you have performed a disaster recovery to rebuild the NetVault Backup Server.
Click Next to add the device.

Removing RDS Devices From NetVault Backup

Refer to the following steps to remove existing RDS devices from NetVault Backup.

Click Remove, and then in the confirmation dialog box, click Remove again.
If NetVault Backup fails to remove the device, select the Force Removal check box in the confirmation dialog, and click Remove.

The selected RDS device is removed from NetVault Backup. The RDS container can now be removed from the DR Series system.
