Source Side Deduplication / using own ports for data transfer?

Hey guys,

when i enable the source side deduplication which ports must be open for data transfer?

In omnirc file i found few variables which can be associated with the deduplicated data transfer:

#===========================================================================
#   Variables which can be used for StoreOnceSoftware
#===========================================================================
#
#  OB2_STOREONCESOFTWARE_COMMAND_PORT=1-65535
#    Default: 9387 
#    The port on which StoreOnceSoftware daemon/service waits to receive 
#    connections from MA. MA will have to use the same port in order to connect to
#    StoreOnceSoftware daemon/service.
#
#  OB2_STOREONCESOFTWARE_DATA_PORT=1-65535
#    Default: 9388
#    The port on which StoreOnceSoftware daemon/service waits to receive 
#    data from MA.

#===========================================================================
#   Variables which can be used for StoreOnce Backup System 
#===========================================================================
#
#  OB2D2D_COMMAND_PORT=1-65535
#   This variable changes the port which is used for command communication between the Media Agent and the StoreOnce Backup system.
#   For example: OB2D2D_COMMAND_PORT =12345
#   Default: 9387
#
#  OB2D2D_DATA_PORT=1-65535
#   This variable changes the port which is used for data communication between the Media Agent and the StoreOnce Backup system utility.
#   For example: OB2D2D_DATA_PORT=12346
#   Default: 9388

Whats the difference between this four points?

Actual, we have a very strictness firewall between the client and the cellserver. And i get no connection to our StoreOnce device..

Got error: "StoreOnce error: StoreOnce device offline, network error occurred or secure communication failed while contacting the StoreOnce device"

Maybe someone  can help :)

greetings,

chris

Re: Source Side Deduplication / using own ports for data transfer?

Hi Chris,

the first question would be: do you have a StoreOnce appliance trying to connect to? If yes, forget about the omnirc variables for the StoreOnceSoftware. When using Source Side Deduplication the Media Agent is installed on the system you trying to backup. Hence, the two ports are requierd and to be allowed to communicate over to the StoreOnce System.

The second question would be: Do you use Catalyst over FibreChannel or Catalyst over IP to backup the clients? If CoFC is configured for the Gateway and you are trying to backup a client without zoning with StoreOnce or without increasing devices per initiator port (on Windows), then in this case it is very likely to receive the error below.

If CoIP is to be used to backup the clients, you might check the gateway configuration and if for all listed clients the check will not provide any error.

If you provide more details, schreenshots, etc. I'm glad to help you finding the cause of the error message.

 

Best regards

Daniel
