Hello,

 

We have created a new library. we were trying to associate it to an existing deduplication engine (new data path) but its not avaiable.

Can anyone help understand why?

 

Regards,

@STR , thanks for the question!

Quick question of my own:

Is this Storage Policy using a Global Deduplication Policy set somewhere else?  You SHOULD be able to add another library to a Dedupe copy, though iof that copy is subscribed to a Global DDB, then you need to add it to the Global DDB copy, not the child.

Hello Mike,

 

Maybe i havent explained myself. Iam trying to add it at the Deduplication engine itself so that is automatically available to the SP using that dedup engine.

As a side nothe, I only have 1 machine (Commserve and MA).

@STR , possible we aren’t thinking of the same thing :joy:

Are you trying to add a new Deduplication Database Partition, or add more space for backups (that are deduplicated) go?  Or something altogether different?

Can you share a screenshot of what you are trying to do?

Thanks!

@STR , following up.  Can you clarify what you are trying to do?  Are you trying to add a new Deduplication Database Partition, or add more space for backups (that are deduplicated) go?  Or something altogether different?
