OST to TAPE Direct Duplication is not working properly after upgrading to NetBackup 7.5.
No errors are seen; the job details will simply show duplications going over the network rather than using Direct Copy to Tape.
Prior to 7.5, all optimization checks (optimization) or NDMP Direct Copy were done post SLP batching in bpduplicate. Logic added to nbstserv to do this check instead triggered this problem.
