  • Hi,

    DPM has flat tape management model and will use tapes as needed from any slot that has a free tape. You can control which protection groups can be co-located on a tape by setting up co-location tape sets.

    is there a way in DPM 2012 with MSL 2024 tape library connected to it. to create partitions from two or three tapes like Symantec Backup exec??

    Or is there any way to specify on which tape my long term backup will be located.

    regards,
