How to manually run a Yearly Tape backup of a Volume in DPM? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can run a manual tape backup by right clicking on the volume and choosing Long term backup, but it only runs the monthly tape backup job.

    How can I manually run a Yearly Tape backup job?

    I am using DPM 2010.

    There must be a way to create a job that uses Yearly backup settings.  

    Or an alternative is to change the expiry date of the Backup if that is possible.

  • Although you cannot pick the recovery point date in the past to make a new recovery point from, you can run the DPM Power shell script in this post to select a recovery goal to make a current backup for.  The recovery point date would be that of the latest disk based recovery point for any goal selected.
