Manual Backup RRS feed

  • Hi,


    The GUI only allows you to perform ad-hoc backups at the data source level, however you can select multiple data sources at a time by holding the Ctrl key, then right-click and select create recovery point - long term tape protection.  That will copy the latest RP on disk of each data source to the tape.

  • To clarrify this only works for data sources within the same protection group.  Another way to say this is Adhoc backups can be performed (one per tape) from selected the data you want from within a protection group and clicking through the wizard.  If tape co-location is enabled you will still need to perform and have 1 tape per protection group.
