How to dedicate a tape in tape library by using DPM 2010 for a perticualr backup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    We have implemented the DPM 2010 successfully in our organization. But while creating the protection group it shows the tape library name but not the individual tapes. 

    So, our requirement is as below.

    We want to create the daily backup in one tape. and weekly backup in another tape.

    How we can select the specific tape in library for different backup?

    An early response will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,Regards,

  • Hi,

    You not need to do anything special, DPM automatically will write daily backups on one tape (any free tape in the library) and will write the weekly backups on a seperate tape.

  • Hello Mike,

    Thanks for the reply, but the question is, how we will come to know about the tape which tape is used by the daily and which tape is used by the weekly backup?

  • Hi,

    When you setup the long term recovery goals, double-click on the "tape label" field - that allows you to edit the tape label.  This will let you customize the tape label for daily and weekly tapes.
