Backup secondary DPM server to tape RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,


    Should be a quick one this.  As I understand it, if I want to offload data on one DPM server to tape connected to another DPM server, I must backup the data to disk first?  Could anyone confirm if this is correct?

  • Hello,


    That is correct, we don't support just disk to tape backup of a primary DPM server, so you will need to have Disk2Disk2TAPE backup on the secondary dpm server.  You can just keep one days disk recover points on the secondary if you plan on just backing up to tape to minumize storage needs.
