Best Replication Method Between DataDomains?

I have two DD670's and DDBOOST. I use to use the clone replication within NETWORKER but I recently moved to Bacupexec 2014 still using ddboost.   What is the best method to replicate folders bi-directional to the data domains?  Mtree - Pool, Directory etc?

Thank you,

SB

Re: Best Replication Method Between DataDomains?

I've been working on this all morning and now I'm really confused.

When you configure storage on Backupexec 2014 and use the OST-plugin type target it can only see a Data Domain Storage Unit which makes since since it's a dedupe target.  However, when I want to setup the directory replication on the data domains they can't see storage unit folders under the /data/col1.  I'm in a catch 22.

I just want to perform bi-directional replication using two dd670's and storage unit folders.

Please review the following document:

With DDBoost, then you should also be able to take advantage of DD Boost replication active in NetBackup and NetWorker.
