Configuring MSDP fingerprint cache seeding on the client
Seeding on the client requires the following:
A client name
A policy name
A date after which to stop using the similar client's fingerprint cache.
Information about when to use this seeding method and how to choose a client from which to seed is available.
See About seeding the MSDP fingerprint cache for remote client deduplication.
Do not use this procedure on the storage server or the load balancing server. If you do, it affects all clients that are backed up by that host.
To seed the MSDP fingerprint cache on the client
- Before the first backup of the remote client, edit the FP_CACHE_CLIENT_POLICY parameter in the
pd.conffile on the remote client.
Specify the setting in the following format:
The name of the existing similar client from which to seed the cache.
NetBackup treats long and short host names differently, so ensure that you use the client name as it appears in the policy that backs it up.
The backup policy for that client.
The last date in mm/dd/yyyy format to use the fingerprint cache from the existing similar client. After this date, NetBackup uses the fingerprints from the client's own backup.
See Editing the MSDP pd.conf file.
