Re: Firestreamer with off-site storage

If we had an earthquake (California here) and the the HQ where the DPM server lives was destroyed, I assume we could re-catalog the firestreamer volumes on a new dpm server to perform restores, correct? Like with physical tapes, you will need to import and recatalog the tapes with the new DPM serve...

Re: Firestreamer with off-site storage

It's a common scenario. That's what Firestreamer is designed for.

Re: GPT Disks

Firestreamer only cares about partition tables for safety reasons, to minimize the risk of accidentally overwriting the user data that may be present on a disk. Once it decides to proceed, the existing partition table will be overwritten (deleted). The size of the partition doesn't matter. Firestrea...

Re: Unable to open medium

Do not use drive letters in media names because an external HDD may have a different drive letter or no letter at all assigned to it in the security context of the Firestreamer Helper Service. Instead, use the volume names which are guaranteed to point to the same disk regardless of the current acco...

Re: Tape questions

how do I monitor the available space on the tapes I created? Is there a way to tell if the tapes are almost used up and I need to create more tapes? It's the backup software that should display the tape usage data, not a tape drive. Normally, you don't need to monitor tapes with Microsoft DPM. It s...

Re: The tape is write protected

You need to check the Activity view of Firestreamer Snap-In for warning or error messages. See also W004: The medium is write protected.

Re: DPM 2010 + Firestreamer + Data Domain

Their "tape markers" most likely refer to proprietary formats used by various vendors for virtual tape. Firestreamer is from a vendor that Data Domain doesn't seem to support yet. We will try to contact them next week. I will post any updates here.
