Data protector express D2D2Any

Is there a way to configure DPX to copy to tape only the full copy of a typical rotation job of one full and five incremental copies?

I only see the possibility of configure the copy in a device or slot level, but nothing about job level.

Thanks in advance

Re: Data protector express D2D2Any

Hello Juanjo,

Upgrade to Data Protector Express version 3.5 Service Pack 2 (SP2). SP2 includes an update to the D2D2Any option that allows any job to create a second copy job. If you have a rotation set up you can decide which of the rotation types the copy policy applies to. The copy policy is tied to the job rather than the D2D device.

I've attached a screenshot of the new screen.

You can download a free upgrade from If you have the D2D2Any license it will automatically show the new screens after you upgrade.
