DPM 2016 setup for tape library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All  i have a DPM 2016 server installed and configured with Tape library HPE MSL6480 Scalable Base Module

    it has two libraries. lets say one is called MSL6480 and other one is called VTL. I wanted to know if i can do following using DPM 2016.

    first backup into= disks

    from disk to = tape library MSL6480

    From MSL6480 to = VTL library.

    if this is possible how do i configure? what is the best practice? any help would be appreciate.

    thanks

  • Hi

    That is possible, but you would need to deploy a secondary DPM server.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/dpm/back-up-the-dpm-server?view=sc-dpm-1807

    For example. The primary DPM server stores backups on disks and on MSL6480 tape library. On your secondary DPM server you would backup the primary DPM (database) server and replicas to the disks and VTL library connected to secondary DPM server. If primary DPM server fails you can switch over the protection and continue with the backups and restore your primary DPM server.
