DPM daily backup gets written on different tapes. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using a DPM on windows 2012 R2 server, have a short term backup on disk and long term backup on tape.

    Consists of 5 PGs, backup is done daily to tapes (Mon-Fri) and also weekly once(Friday).

    Retention for long term is 520 weeks, all PGs have same settings.

    The problem is the PGs are not backed up to the same tape for same day even though the tape is not full, it gets marked as offsite ready.

    The tape optimization setup has been setup for the PGs with write period of 1 day and expiry tolerance of 1 day as well.

    I want the backups from a single day on single tape and next day on different tape, how can this be achieved.

    Thanks and Regards
