DPM 2012 R2 backups to Tape and VTL

Post by claydoc » 19 Feb 2015, 00:14

Hi Guys,

How do I tell DPM 2012 to backup my data to both my tape library and VTL (Firestreamer) devices?

I wish to have the same backup data on both devices.

Thanks

It's no different than if you had two physical tape libraries. You should ask Microsoft Support as they are in a better position to answer. To our knowledge, you need to select in DPM one library as the primary one, and another library as a copy library.

It looks correct, though I repeat we are not in the position to advise on Microsoft DPM configuration.
