Is anyone using ddboost over FC and over IP with the same MTree?
I'd like to use boost over FC only for a few clients, but the documentation is not clear to me:
dd integration guide:
NetWorker supports data backup and data recovery operations to DD Boost devices over
Data Domain Fibre Channel (DFC or FC) connections, configured as a SAN, as follows:
The NetWorker storage nodes and all Client Direct clients must have FC SAN network
access to the Data Domain systems that have FC-enabled DD Boost devices"
"Converting DD Boost devices from IP to FC connectivity
After you have met the FC support requirements, you can convert existing DD Boost
devices that use Ethernet IP connections to use FC connections deployed as a SAN. No
data is lost by the conversion and full DD Boost features are retained, including Client
Direct operations for backup and restore."
This should work. You can have the same device accessible over IP and FC.
