This might seem stupid but I’m a bit confused by these two documents on the Commvault website that talk about deduplicating policy copies.
If I’m getting the below articles correctly, the difference between;
Creating a Storage Policy Copy with Deduplication
and Creating a Deduplication Enabled Policy Copy
is that the former is created using a Storage Pool (dedup engine exists) whilst for the latter the Deduplication location is not an existing dedup engine (storage pool) but just a local folder on the media agent?
If the latter is correct and I want to use it to deduplicate additional independent copies e.g. Weekly Fulls and Monthly Fulls on independent libraries against the Primary Copy data, is there a downside to it?
Need some assistance on this.
