Use more than one tape library for tape backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are currently using DPM 2010 to backup all of our data. We use multiple protection groups which all backup to the same tape library/tape device. We will be adding a new client soon which we will put into it;s own protection group. I would like to know if I can specify that that protection group backup to a different tape drive/library.

    So Protection Group A would backup to HP LTO 5 tape drive and Protection Group B would backup to HP LTO 4 tape drive.

    The Protection groups would go to the same media pool for short term storage but different tape drives for long term backup.

  • hi Rob,

    yes that is possible - just select the other TL during creation of the new PG.
