  • Temp disable deduplication
    Posted: 03-14-2016, 5:04 PM



    I was wondering if someone can tell me what happens when you disable deduplication temporarily.  Does it write every block to storage and leave the DDB out of the loop, or does it write each block in the DDB for future reference? 


    I ask because we are running out of space on a DDB path and it will be a little while before we can get the necessary hardware to resolve the issue.  I have plenty of space for the storage target, so I was wondering the implications of disabling dedup temporarily and if that is the proper procedures to allowing backups to continue to run.


    Also, we have Oracle DB backups going to this storage policy and that have deduplication disable on the client level so there is no deduplication.  Can you deduplicate Oracle DB backups?  If not, are there any problems with these clients being attached to a deduplication storage policy?


    Thanks in advanced for the help!

    You can Dedupe oracle DB also but Dedupe ratio will be very low.
