System State and BMR to disk. Drive volumes to tape. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have limited disk resources available for DP 2012 R2 server. Would there be any issues if I backed up the System State and BMR of our servers to disk and the Volumes to tape? I want the ability to do bare metal restores. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    This could be achieved as long as you create two Protection Groups and configure them separately.
    For example:
    Protection Group 1 for SystemState and BMR. Short-term backup: disk.
    Protection Group 2 for Volumes. Short-term backup: Tape.

    Note. The page where you have the option to choose your protection method is called "Select data protection method" in the Create New Protection Group-wizard.

    Kind Regards
