DPM 2012 - Unable to Use File Backup AND Tape Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there!

    I have the following questions:

    How to backup the same content (for example, SharePoint_AdminContent, SharePoint_Config, SharePoint_SMPortalContent, and WSS_Content) to the disk AND to the tape? I noticed that once the object is selected for one protection group then it is not available for another protection group. Is it a limitation by design or it can be overcome?

    Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

  • Hi,

    A datasource can only be protected once, so simply select the long term backup checkbox when going though the PG wizard of the exisitng PG and that will allow you to also schedule tape backups.
