  • Aux Copy Query
    Posted: 08-09-2019, 6:40 AM
    We have primary copy storage policy which is having windows MA server hosting DDB.
    Seconday Copy (Dash Copy) created on this primary copy and during creation selected Global DDB which is a destination DDB and it adds a destiantion MA server which is Linux MA server.

    Concern is my Source MA server is Windows and My destination MA server is Linux. Is this is expected behaviour and it will support de-duplication here during aux copy ? Kindly clear this point.

    Hi CVLT 

    It doesn't matter whether the Source and Destination is different OS Flavour, at the end of the day these are two independent copy with different Deduplication association. 

    Note - even if you use a mix of Windows or Linux on a single copy it will still work, it all depends on how the Storage is presented. (i.e. if the disk library is Network Share, with CIFS & NFS multi-protocol, both the MA will still be able to read/write the data, the CHUNKs do not change between different OS)

    For best practice, in most case you would segrate using different OS to minimize complexity, but it will still work if you do configure them under one GDDB)
