Data Protection Manager - Protection Groups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I want to reorganize my DPM 2010 configuration.

    I have a tape library directly connected to a DPM 2010 server, wich contains 22 usable tapes. At the moment i have about 25 servers, devided in 5 Protection Groups. Tape co-location is enabled.

    I figured that all selected data sources of all servers in all protection groups, fit on 1 tape. However, with co-location enabled, DPM sometimes fills up a previously used tape, before using a free or expired one.

    Now my question;

    Is it smart to put all the 25 servers in 1 single protection group and disable co-location?
    In that way everyday only a single tape is used for all the backups. Also the weekly backups will only use 1 tape. It creates a nice overview for me. All servers can use the same schedule.

    What is your opinion on this?
