DP 6.2: 2 partitions available to restore data

Hello,

I recently added a second library to Dataprotector 6.2.

Now, when I want to restore a data, in the interface I see 2 lines for the same drive.

For example, for the server "Server1" I have :

- C: [C:]

- C: [Server1[/C:]]

 

So when I want to restore, according to the library used I have to check both letter to find where is saved my data.

 

I'd like to have all my backup under the same drive whatever library is used.

 

Thanks for your help.

Hello

 

I think this is related to DNS resolution, you have done backup for this host resolving short name and long name for this reason some drives are duplicated.

 

If you check DNS resolution and older session are purged you will see again just one drive.

 

Best Regards

I have a job running for months wich use the letter only.

If I copy this job and modify the library, it will use the "long" letter.

So the only difference between the two jobs is the library.

You need to check the Backup Object Summary tab in the backup job properties as the description of the object has changed when you copied the job and is why you see 2 instances in the restore GUI.

 

Ideally you should "copy as" the original job and disable the backup on the copied job then modify the tape drives in the original job and this should keep the object description the same.

 

cheers,
