deduplication in samba share [CLOSED]

New postby ulaaser » Fri Aug 12, 2011 5:57 pm

i just installed like suggested latest debian6 in minimal setup, followed by ubuntu-setup and nighly-update... during the instalation i found in forum that there exist a dedup support... but im not sure if dedup is activated by default? What kind of dedup technic is implemented? Im trying in an vsphere 4.1 demo environment, have taken varios snapshots after debian setup, before africa download, after africa setup, after nighlty update...
Normally i understand that dedup is activated @ partition level mounting a special partition... i want to create a special partition for later samba shares. but im not sure how will dedup be implemented...

can you help with more input about dedup implementation?

Artica using lessfs that did not require a specific partition.

Upgrade to the latests nightly 1.5.080923

You have severals ways to enable deduplication
Go into the system section and click on the grey deduplication icon

We have encountered some issues using the setup control center.
Sometimes, the framework did not have corrects environnement and some compilations failed with this error displayed in events :
Code: Select all
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

If you meet this issue, use command lines bellow:
Code: Select all
/usr/share/artica-postfix/bin/artica-make APP_ZFS_FUSE
/usr/share/artica-postfix/bin/artica-make APP_TOKYOCABINET
/usr/share/artica-postfix/bin/artica-make APP_LESSFS

Once installed, the form will be replaced by a page with tabs.

Everything saving in this folder will be deduplicated.
You have just need to share this folder in order to provide a deduplicated shared folder.
