Microsoft DPM Backing up to Tape Failing
Posted on 2014-04-28
I have recently setup a new backup server and i'm running Data protection manager on it. Currently I have all my backup copies going to disk, I had just installed "Firestreamer" (virtual tape library) and did what I thought is correct, but im getting failures when I run tape backup. I am testing the tape backups with a protection group that is only monitoring a small SQL database.
The error that DPM states is:
"The back up to tape job failed for the following reason: (ID 3311)"
I've tried rescanning the inventory under management for the tapes but still no luck...
Has anyone had any experience with backing up to tape?
