Media Sets RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am migrating from Backup Exec to DPM this week and need a little help. In BE I had media sets that were allocated for my daily backups and tapes allocated for my Weekly backups.

    How can I do the same type of thing in DPM.

    I have 4 Protection Groups that perform Full and Incremental backups. I need all my full backups to go to a particular set of tapes and incremental to another set of tapes.

  • Hi,

    DPM does not have provisions for assigning specific tape slots to protection groups. The best you can do is control which protection groups share tapes (or not) not making protection group colocation sets in DPM 2012 and higher.
