Data Domain Replication Query

TSM Server v6.3.4
Running on Windows 2008 R2
EMC data Domain 990 appliances as TSM storage
Two datacentres. A production TSM server at both sites plus a standby TSM server at both sites, for DR purposes


I have a query with Data Domain replication

I have setup an MTREE. The path is /data/col1/databackup_FF

I have set up a CIFS share. Named databackup_FF_01 and the path is the Mtree name

I have set up a Mtree replication pair

The source (/data/col1/databackup_FF) is in one datacentre, the target (/data/col1/databackup_FF_DR) in the other.
The replication pair automatically creates an mtree in the target Data Domain
I backup data to the databackup_FF_01 share, The data appears to replicate between the source and the target.

So far so good

My question: Do i need to define a CIFS share on the target Data Domain that points to the replication target?
I am trying to understand that when i go to a DR scenario, where the 'source' Data Domain is unavailable, how do I see the data on the target, as this is where my DR data will reside.
Is it a case of having to update my device classes on my TSM DR server?

Hi TSMCON,

Yes - you need to define the CIFS share on target DD. This is what I have to do on DIR replication. (I dont use MTREE replication yet)
