I have hp server dl380 g5 with msa20 expansion storage module for sharing files. Host OS is server 2003 with function domain controler and file server. I have many many duplicate files on this msa20 storage and I need some transparent technology for deduplicating them. SIS (single instance storage) component from windows 2000 ris setup is solution for me. I dont want to remove any function from 2003 like dc.
Do I can install on this 2003 host server virtual pc, inside vpc one server 2000 (drivers exist for all hardware for 2000), run on them ris/sis option for controling storage space on msa20 and share them for users on network?
