    The MSDN, TechNet and Expression Library Feedback forum is to "Help improve the Library Experience in MSDN, TechNet and Expression by providing feedback on features, bugs, look and feel or by just providing suggestions". This is not a support forum.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the System Center Data Protection Manager Data Protection Manager - Tape Protection forum.

  • Hi,

    Tape management with DPM is very bad.

    According to me, there is no way you can force DPM to user a specific set of LTO for backups of a Tape Library

    DPM takes LTO tapes marked as free for long term backups.

    After, for incremental backup on iSCSI VTL, you can choose Short-Term Protection using your VTL (seen as a Libray) rather than using disk and then configure Long Term protection using LTO TAPE
