Infinite archiving RRS feed

  • Question

  • All greetings! It would be desirable to understand, how it is possible to adjust DPM 2010 that it delete archives when already maximum specified number of archives and archiving has collected proceeded according to plan, instead of stopped, when the maximum number of archives has collected?

  • Hi

    When you create a protection group you will be able to define short-term and long-term protection (if you will copy the data to tape). You will aslo define the retention time that will tell the DPM server for how long it will keep the data on disk and tape.

    Every night the script pruneshadowcopies.ps1 will run on the DPM server. This script will verify if the retention time has expired for some recoverypoints and make an updated replica of your data.
