  • No, you may use "copy library" or can have both disk and tape backups for a PG.

  • That's not feasible but in dpm there are options such as when you create a pg or modify a pg, in "select data protection method" you can select "I want short-term protection using disk" and "i want long-term protection using tape ".

    By selecting these options you can have a recovery point on disk and tape both.
