  • Hi,

    By design, all data sources in a Protection Group will go to the same tape.  If you want separate tapes for each data source, then you need to place them in separate protection groups.

  • Are you meaning multiple protection groups are going to a tape backup? If so you can dictate which protection groups can use the same tape by selecting Tape Optimization icon on the top left in management.
