About the treatment of images without a corresponding duplication rule

In some cases, the profile may list more media servers in the Media Servers list on the Choose Backups tab than in the advanced configuration view on the Duplication tab.


More than one media server applies to NetBackup Enterprise Server only.

If this happens, images written by media servers that have no corresponding duplication rule must also be duplicated. Vault duplicates those images but tries to minimize total duplication time by keeping as many drives as possible busy writing data until all images are duplicated.

This is handled as follows:

The previous configurations are best suited for a SAN environment where all media servers are visible to all robots.
