Will DPM 2010 recatalog a tape made with 2007 on another server? RRS feed

Answers

  • Hello Diago,

     

    Yes, DPM2010 can import and re-catalog tapes made by DPM 2007.  If the tapes were encrypted, you need to import the certificate from the DPM 2007 server that wrote the tape. 

    Right-click the Imported tape and select "Recatalog imported tape" Once cataloged, the tape contents should show up under the recovery tab under the EXTERNAL DPM TAPES, and you should be able to browse the contents and restore from there.

    The restore options available will be limited to restoring to a network share or disk of any server that has an agent installed.  You cannot restore back to original location.
