Cause

If you disable DDR replication, it is automatically writeable. When DDR Replication is enabled, only DD can write. The replication strategy determines who is allowed to write to the directory.

Resolution 

  • You may select either DDR Replication or MFR (ddboost) Replication, not both.
  • You have to disable DDR replication if you want to use DDBoost.
  • You cannot have the Data Domain managing a backup, then manually copy a DDBoost backup. The Data Domain either replicates the backup directory, or you have to manage it manually using gpcrondump --ddboost.
