re-running a dpm tape backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • What data does re-running a tape backup in DPM actualy backup? For example I have recovery point for everyday of the week on disk and tape backups for every day of the week. Say Monday fails to run and I am not in the office until Wednesday, if I re-run the Monday job on Wednesday do I get data from the Monday recovery point or would I get data from the current Wednesday recovery points? I hope it is Mondays data since I am backing up on Wednesday anyway and dont need 2 copies of that data, but could need Mondays.

    Thanks for any light you can shed on this for me,

  • Hi,

    I beieve it will rerun the proper days recovery point.  After it completes, look at the tape details and check it's recovery point time.
