Tape Backup - several Protection Groups RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have several protection groups and I would like to backup to tape 1 time a week. My problem is that I have each one setup to backup to tape at 6pm on Fridays. It seem that only the first group backups to tape the others don't. Under protection to other groups say Backup to tape failed. Is there a setting somewhere that allows this? Or do I have it setup wrong?

  • Hi,

    each protection group is trying to access the tape at the same time and that is causing an error.
    You should configure your protection groups to backup at different time or you could configure the PGs to fusion into only one PG.
