I have a SQL Server instance which is I plan to protect by DPM by taking daily express fulls.
We also have a requirement where we need to write our database to tape (for legal reasons). In our environment DPM cannot write to tape directly.
What I plan to do is that at the end of the month... just schedule a job to take a FULL backup of SQL on a volume and then give it to tape guys.
My question is that will this direct backup command to SQL interfere with the DPM agent? if yes, how can I stop this conflict.
What precautions can I take to ensure that there is no impact on DPM of the full SQL backup which I need for the legal tape.
Again, in our environment we cannot write to tape from DPM itself.
