DPM 2010 Bare Metal Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to figure out the way DPM 2010 works. I got a few questions;

    1. Do Bare Metal backups and system state backups work the same as file and application backups? Like a replica is created first, and the replica is synct at certain times, and then recovery points are created?

    2. I have a tape library with 23 tapes, one of em is a cleaning tape. Let's say i use 5 tapes in 1 week to backup the daily backups. Can I configure DPM to use the same tapes in the second week, and overwrite them? At the moment we use a PowerShell script to free tapes on daily bases.

    Thanks in advance!
