Configuring client attributes for MSDP client-side deduplication
To configure client deduplication, set an attribute in the NetBackup master serverhost properties. If the client is in a backup policy in which the storage destination is a , the client deduplicates its own data.
To specify the clients that deduplicate backups
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand NetBackup Management > Host Properties > Master Servers.
- In the details pane, select the master server.
- On the Actions menu, select Properties.
- Select the Client Attributes properties.
On the General tab of the Client Attributes properties, add the clients that you want to deduplicate their own data to the Clients list, as follows:
In the Add Client dialog box, enter a client name or browse to select a client. Then click Add.
Repeat for each client that you want to add.
When you finish adding clients, click Close.
- You can override the Prefer to use client-side deduplication or Always use client-side deduplication host property in the backup policies.
Select one of the following Deduplication Location options:
Always use the media server disables client deduplication. By default, all clients are configured with the Always use the media server option.
Prefer to use client-side deduplication uses client deduplication if the deduplication plug-in is active on the client. If it is not active, a normal backup occurs; client deduplication does not occur.
Always use client-side deduplication uses client deduplication. If the deduplication backup job fails, NetBackup retries the job.
