DPM - Need Backups on different tapes for different days. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have an issue with my data getting backed up on same tape for different days, need to change it so that the data is on a single tape for a single tape.

    My Scenario: 5 Protection Groups

    Daily Backup

    Tapes changed at the end of the week.

    All 5 PG's need to be on same tape for a single day.

    What settings should I be having for this setup?

    Kind Regards

  • Hi Leon,

    My issue is since I have 5 PG's, I use Tape Co-location.

    The backup starts at 8 pm, so I have to set write period more than 1 day since the job carries on until the next day. And since the write period is more than day, the backup from next day also gets written on the same tape.

    I want the tape to be marked off-site ready when the backup is finished.

    How do I solve this?
