DPM Monthly doesn't show offsite ready RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    As per the information below DPM 2010 doesn't show the monthly tape as offsite ready but can i still take it off manually for offsite storage?

     

    When tape co-location is enabled, a tape on to which offsite backup is written will not be shown as Offsite Ready unless one of the following conditions are met:

     

    • The tape is full.

    • One of the datasets has expired.

    • Write-period ratio has been crossed. (By default, this is first backup time + 15 per cent of retention range.)

  • Hi,

    Yes, you can remove a tape from the library anytime and that will not cause any problems.  Assuming a 90 day retention, the tape will not be marked offsite ready for 13.5 days after the first backup time if the Write-period ratio is set at default values.
