When using a DD Boost server to back up and restore data, you must add and configure the DD Boost server using the BAR Setup portlet.
DD Boost storage units are tied to media servers during the target group configuration. It is important that the storage units entered for your configuration coincide with the storage units intended for the media server and device configuration mapped as a target.
  1. From the DSC Servers list, select your DSC server.
  2. From the Categories list, click Backup Solutions.
  3. From the Solutions list, click DD Boost.
