Manually run a tape backup, assuming no currently failed job (DPM2012) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a scheduled tape backup job.

    I would like to manually run an identical one to that.  There is not a failed job I can rerun in this case.  Is there any way from the GUI that I can trigger such a run?  If not, I'm assuming there IS a way with powershell, but I'm not familiar at all with Powershell so you'd need to be detailed when explaining it.

  • Hi,

    i would recommend to configure your Protection Group with a Copy Libray.

  • Could you clarify how that's related to what I'm asking?

    What would it be copying to -> from and how would it go about doing it, and how would it be the same as the optimized scheduled job that includes multiple protection groups?
