Our current MA is Windows 2003 R2 x64.
I'd like to rebuild it from scratch using 2008 x64 (probably not R2), same server name etc.
What's the best way to do this from a Commvault perspective please?
In terms of backup destinations it has a SAS attached LTO library, and a dedupe DB and some local magnetic library - we are just testing maglib right now so I'd be happy if I was able to aux copy the stuff in the maglib to tape and then destroy the array that contains the dedupe DB and maglib.
Also the array that we'd be using is a Dell MD3000i iSCSI with 15x1tb 7.2k MDL SAS drives. I know Commvault recommend 64kb allocation units in Windows but in terms of the RAID group config would you suggest allocating the drives as 1x15 or 3x5 or 2x7 plus hot spare?
Obviously I'm wanting to try and balance capacity with performance, but as I want to do aux copy I do want/need enough performance to be able to get decent write speeds to the LTO4.
