DPM 2012 and VTL (SAN) and/or NAS (CIFS) targets? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an HP StoreOnce 4500 that supports FC VTL and NAS (CIFS).  Can I use these as targets with DPM 2012?

    Thank you...

  • Hi,

    You can use the VTL with DPM for short term or long term tape backups, however DPM cannot use CIFS for storage, only block level storage is supported for DPM storage pool disks.
