Ali, thanks a lot for clarifing the syncing method of parititoned ddbs.
I am also in doubt about ddbs in partitioned mode wheter it syncs or not sync.
anyway, I am curiuos about partitioned ddbs in my enrironemnt, which need to ask you so please help explain.
from day 1 I started configuration partitioned ddbs in 2 node grid, when I ran the first backup job into this grid, I saw both ddb patitions in both nodes has the same data in ddb direcotries. afte I ran backup job 2, also, the both parititions still write the same ddb content in ddb direcotry (which look like it is syncing each other)
Could you please explain this situation? when data is written in grid with partitioned ddbs, does the ddb records will be distributed into every online partition, and leave the offline ones out of syncing?
During posting this question, I also test again by running a backup job into grid, which is written into MA1. When backup job finished, I look at the ddb directory of both MA1 and MA2, and found that MA2 also have bytes increased in ddb directory, with the same file name and bytes in both MAs. (looks like it also write ddb entries in MA2 as well, even MA2 is not selected to be the target of backup)
This is the question that I asks previously in forum but no reply at all.
