Optimize DPM Tape Usage by enabling Data Co-Location

In DPM 2010 if you have multiple protection groups you can share tapes among them allowing recovery points from different protection groups to be written on the same tape.

Run the following command in DPM Management Shell to enable Data Co-Location:

Set-DPMGlobalProperty -DPMServerName <name of DPM server> -OptimizeTapeUsage $True

Note: If you are using DPM 2007, you need to install the Feature Pack first;EN-US;949779
