DPM tape retention change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am using a DPM 2010 server which has weekly (expired after six weeks) and monthly (expired after twelve months) tape backup jobs running. I have had some issue on the tape library due to which I wasn't able to have smooth monthly tape backups running. I could not re-run the jobs because of an error "The protection group has been modified. The jobs can not be re-run". I understand that this is a known issue in DPM and those alerts are also inactivated now. The question at hand is, Is there a PS script which will let me change the retention policy of my current weekly tape backups? eg. Is it possible to retain the weekly tape backups from six weeks to twelve months? Will the tape labels also be changed thereby? I know this is against the natural course but this is the only option I am left with. Please help.
