  • Hi,

    Library sharing is only supported when the DPM servers using the library are on same versions of DPM.    We also do not support multiple DPM Servers (Or other applications) sharing a physical library. The DPM server needs exclusive use of the physical library if not using library sharing feature. The exception would be if you create hardware partitions on the Library if it supports such a feature.  Basically a hardware partition is a virtual library that consists of two or more logical libraries that you can then assign to seperate DPM Servers.
