A Multi-interface B2D Library (StoreOnce Catalyst or Data Domain Boost) configured using an IP address or DNS name can't be used by a client for Server-side or Source-side de-duplication in case it can only access the FC interface of the device. The client fails to retrieve the FC address due to missing IP communication.
This request is to add a "proxy mechanism" to fetch the FC address by a different client system (e.g. Cell Manager or different gateway configured) and send it to the FC-only client.
Client systems in an isolated network environment (e.g. DMZ, hosted customer LAN) unable to access the Backup System IP address (FC connectivity is available) would be able to use a Multi-interface B2D Library (StoreOnce Catalyst or Data Domain Boost).
Configure an additional B2D Library with a FC address to be used by the isolated clients. This adds additional complexity to the environment and should be avoided if possible.
