Adjusting SAP Protection Group in DPM 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    I ask for your support and skills to resolve this situation:

    We have our SAP environment with DB2 in Production, Developing and Quality.

    I made backup of SAP files (Network drives), DB2 backups place in an specific folder and 4 Snapshots.

    All three are backup through one protection group in DPM 2010:

    - Short-term: everyday at 9:00pm

    - Long-term: weekly and monthly 

    - Compression active

    We have LTO5 tapes so every protection group I configure uses at least one tape each time a backup is made.

    My problem is that this SAP Protection Group uses 3 tapes in Short and Long term backup, wasting this tapes because if I sum all the backups it gives me approximately 1400Gb and LTO5 Ultrium tape has a 3TB capacity.

    I don´t know how to configure this backups to be made and safe in 1 tape, so I need your help to solve this

    Thanks in advanced
