PowerProtect Data Manager leverages the embedded Data Domain in the IDPA as the target server for protecting modern workloads. To start protecting modern workloads, PowerProtect Data Manager must discover the embedded Data Domain system as the target storage server. As a prerequisite, create a dedicated PowerProtect Data Domain Boost User for Data Domain Discovery.
To discover the embedded Data Domain System:
The Storage window appears.
A dialog box appears to indicate that the request to add storage has been initiated.
When a discovery completes successfully, the Status column updates to OK.
This process has successfully discovered the embedded Data Domain system as the target storage server with PowerProtect Data Manager. You can now start protecting modern workloads in the embedded Data Domain system, benefiting from secondary storage with unmatched efficiency, deduplication, performance, and scalability.
