DPM 2010 and Symantec Backup Exec 12.5

Dear All,

I have DPM 2010 installed on physical name iit-Backup. it was working well. it can backup both short-term disk and long-term tape.

After I installed Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 to the same physical server. I get some issue below:
       - Symantec can backup to tape
       - DPM 2010 still can backup with short-time disk. but it cannot backup long-time tape..

Do you have any solution to fix the issue of DPM 2010 backup to tape?

I'm looking to hearing from you.

If the tape is used by Symantec during the time of DPM backup then it get failed.

Is that scheduled in a way that both the backups will use the tape one at a time?

my schedule backup to tape are different date and time. it is not the same time.

DO you have any idea?

the reason you are getting this error, because both application (DPM & BE) are trying to use the same VSS function, and this will lead always to problems, if you need a solution to your problem check this url:
Thank you for your reply.

What I noted and I was tried to do:

- DPM 2010: can backup with short-time disk. It can backup Exchange database properly every 15 min as my configuration.
- DPM 2010: having from backup to tape. So I was tried to stop Symantec Backup Exec service and restart Tape Library. then I tried to re-run backup to tape but it is failed.

Anyways it is causing by VSS, the short-time disk should be failed but short-time backup also using VSS service.

Noted: Symantec Backup Exec can backup to tape as well.

Do you have any idea?
Dear All,

Do you have any solution or idea?
i think the solution is to choose one of them (BackupExec or DPM2010) not both.
