DPM using VTL (StoreOnce) storage


  • Hello,

    I'm using a VTL disk (StoreOnce) storage for my 2016 DPM backup server.

    Can anyone confirm my understanding how the backup works with this VTL:

    1. The VTL has to be configured on DPM as a Tape storage.
    2. There is no Replica copy made because the backup copies are all full backups?
    3. Can incremental backups be made?
    4. There is no synchronization because there is no replica copy stored on the VTL?


    Regards Peter

  • Hi,

    1. Yes

    2. Protected Server -> Disk -> Tape (some exceptions)

    3. DPM Jobs to Diks are always incremental (except the first Replica creation), Tape= Full (D2D2T)

    4. synch only to Disk

    conclusion: additionally you need disk
