About the replication topology for Auto Image Replication
For Auto Image Replication, the disk volumes have the properties that define the replication relationships between the volumes. The knowledge of the volume properties is considered the replication topology. The following are the replication properties that a volume can have:
A source volume contains the backups of your clients. The volume is the source for the images that are replicated to a remote NetBackup domain. Each source volume in an originating domain has one or more replication partner target volumes in a target domain.
A target volume in the remote domain is the replication partner of a source volume in the originating domain.
The volume does not have a replication attribute.
NetBackup exposes the storage for aas a single volume. Therefore, there is always a one-to-one volume relationship for MSDP.
You configure the replication relationships in the source domain. To do so, you add target storage servers in the Replication tab of the Change Storage Server dialog box of the source storage server.
See Configuring a target for MSDP replication to a remote domain.
NetBackup discovers the replication topology when you configure the replication relationships. NetBackup discovers topology changes when you use the Change Disk Pool dialog box.option of the
See Changing a Media Server Deduplication Pool properties.
NetBackup includes a command that can help you understand your replication topology. Use the command in the following situations:
After you configure the replication targets.
After you configure the storage server and before you configure disk pools.
After changes to the volumes that comprise the storage.
