DP9.04 - ARS and multiple source cell managers

I have a DP9.04 with storeonce 4700 and catalyst at siteA. DP controls replication to a remote DP cell manager with storeonce 4700 and catalyst at siteB. ARS is used and object copties to tape are performed at siteB.

We have a requirement for a 2nd DP cell manager at siteA, using the same storeonce 4700 but dedicated catalyst stores will be created..........We will want to replicated to the siteB cell manager as well so copies to tape can be performed.

so the question is, will DP support ARS and siteB replication from both siteA cell managers?

  • Hi KloppYNWA69,

    this will work. ARS is a point to point configuration. You can mix and match as you wish. You can have fan-in, fan-out, unidirectional or bidirectional replication. I would recommend that the additional Cell Manager that sits in siteA has a dedicated Catalyst store on the StoreOnce 4700 in siteA for the backup. The foreign Cell Manager from siteB must be imported to the cell. The replication destination store on StoreOnce 4700 in siteB could be either the one that is already used or a dedicated one. I would recommend to use a dedicated Catalyst store.
