  • You can simulate it that way but there is no way to ensure that it will work in the way you want.

    Say on Monday, there are two tapes available in the slots, DPM would randomly pick any tape.

    There is no way to specify the label of the tape which should used for a backup.

     

    If you have a standalone drive, you can accomplish it. But the onus to put the correct tape in is on the user.
