    4 windows media servers , V11 SP7

    What is the best practice/method to create disk Libraries and cifs mount points to achieve the following - 

    - how many disk libraries need to create if we hv 4 media servers.

    - should be able to use all media servers and disk library during backups 

    - In case of media server failure, mount points can be moved to other media server to run the backups.

    - In case of media server failure, restore can be performed from the mount points which was assigned to failed media servers.

    What is the underlying storage you are using for the disk library and how is it attached or accessible to the MediaAgents? This will help determine the best configuration.

    Each site will have - 

    Nexenta D2D storage for backup. It will have both HBA and 10GbE connectivity. 30days retention on d2d
    Media Servers will have HBA and 10GbE connectivity.
    We will have FC Tape library for monthly backup only. Last Weekend full backup will be copied from nexenta to tape Library
    Site1 backed up data from Nexenta will be copied to Site2 Nexenta and vice versa. We will use dash copy feature for this.
    Below is my plan to create the disk libaries and share it with MA. Please suggest if this is ok -
    Disk Library for Primary backup
    Disk library Primary Media Agent server for disk library Shared MA for disk Library CIFS shared mount points to all media servers
