how to configure Tape labling Manual in DPM 2010???????????? RRS feed


  • Hi,

    You can custom the tape labels for each of the goal in the protection group.  You must click on the default labels to make it editable, then name it like you want.  Each tape used for that goal will use the c"ustom label-sequence_number".  If you have tape co-location enabled, the first backup that needs a tape will label the tape using that PG's custom label, so you may want to make each PG tape labels the same for each recovery goal.   DPM does not give you the ability to use environment variables, or use custom labels on a per backup basis.
