Configure DPM 2012 with 3 LT in a week RRS feed

  • Question

  • We using DPM 2012 with co-location enabled.

    Connected to 2 physical tape library TL-4000 4 drives+44 slots and TL-2000 2drives+20 slots.

    And third library we use Firestreamer (trial) as Virtual Tape Library (VTL) with 10 virtual drives+50 virtual slots.

    Total libraries are 3.

    The Firestreamer configured Protection Group (PG) as Short-Term (ST) and both physical libraries are configure PG as Long-Term (LT). All configured as backup to TAPE, not to disk.

    Our goal is to send out offside physical tape on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and this will be using physical libraries (TL-4000 & TL-2000) which I assumed using DATASET COPY.

    On VTL we want to cover every working day backup by full backup at Friday and incremental Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu and on Physical libraries by full backup (DATASET COPY) on Mon, Wed and Fri.

    How do I achieve this?
