Re: Items "Disk image Options" invisible

Out of the DataProtector admin guide:

The availability of backup options depends on the type of data being backed up. For example, not all backup options available for a filesystem backup are available for a disk image backup.
...

A disk image backup is a high-speed backup of disks, disk partitions, or
logical volumes without tracking the file and directory structure stored
on these data sources.

...

Use a disk image backup in the following situations:
- You have lots of small files and a high backup speed is required.
- A full disk backup is needed, for example, for disaster recovery or before a major software update.
- A direct disk-to-disk connection is not possible and you want to duplicate a filesystem to another disk. The latter must be identical to the original disk.

...

Limitations:
A disk image backup fails if a file on the target system is open, since Data Protector cannot lock the file.

How to Perform a Disk Image Backup:
To perform a disk image backup, use the Manual add function from the Backup Object Summary page. For detailed steps, refer to the online Help index keyword - backing up, disk images.

Re: Items "Disk image Options" invisible

Yes I see!
This option is only available for certain backup types! For other it is greyed out.

Read more in the DP admin guide on http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00664514/c00664514.pdf
