Long Term Tape Recovery Points Missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • This seems to be happening around most of my protection groups, but here is an example.  I have a protection group with 14 days to disk for short term.  The long term is set to 5 years, weekly for 4 weeks, monthly for 12 months, and yearly for 5 years.  When I go to recover the data or look at the oldest recovery points, they all show January of this year.  Can anyone shed any light on to what happened to all of the older recovery points on tape or why I cannot browse back at anything older than 1/1/2016?  DPM 2012 R2 and DPM 2012 SP1 exhibit the same. 

    Best, Jacob I'm a PC.

  • Hi,

    Check that you tape catalog retention is not set to prune our the database after a set period.

    In the DPM console, select the "Protection" tab, and in the tool bar, click on "Tape Catalog Retention".

    Hope this helps,
