Create a Data Domain Boost Storage unit using the Data Domain Console. For the detailed procedure, see Dell EMC® Data Domain® documentation.
Before You Begin
The following software versions are supported:
Commvault 11.32.25 and higher
Data Domain 7.6 and higher
Microsoft Visual C++ 2013
Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package on any Windows MediaAgents or Windows clients with Storage Accelerator that will be used with the Data Domain.
When using Data Domain Boost library types, the Dell DD Boost SDK will control the communications with the Data Domain storage device. Any system that reads or writes data to the Data Domain storage device will typically need ports 111 and 2049 open between them. For more details, see the Dell Data Domain Security Configuration Guide and Dell Data Domain Administration Guides.
What To Do Next
• Enable Data Domain Boost Storage creation from the Command Center as described in Enabling Data Domain Boost Storage Library Creation.
