How to create duplicate jobs to take offsite? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am moving from Backup Exec to DPM. With BUE, I could create a backup job to the SAN, and the create a "duplicate" job to run from the SAN to hard disk so I could take it offsite.

    How do I accomplish this with DPM?

     

    Thanks,

    ZM

  • Hi,

     

    The DPM solution for offsite is using a tape library and enable long term backup to tape.  You can also enable cloud backup using the built-in link for Iron Mountain.   If you don't want to use DPM D-D-T solution and instead want to utilize a 3rd party backup product for offsite - Using 3rd party to backup a DPM server is basically the same as described here  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc161620.aspx – except the DPM 2007 and DPM 2010 path is now C:\Program files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\...

    However, restores of proteted data will need to be performed to an alternate location (Not back to the DPM server) by the 3rd party application.

  • Hi

    There isn't any duplicate function in DPM itself. If you want to make something similar you can use the FireStremer appliacation to simulate tapes. With the FireStreamer application you can put the data on a disk you can take offsite.

    In BE you create a media-set that holds the B2D folder on a disk you can move offsite, FireStreamer is the same.

    Hope this gives you an answer to your question.
