DPF/CPF test in Veeam 7 (test version)

Veeam Logoby zoe.liao » Tue Nov 05, 2013 2:50 am

Now ,we are testing Veeam 7 Tape with IBM DS3500+LTO 3 +IBM tape driver .

We are wondering if the DPF/CPF (Data path failover /Control path failover )is supported with Veeam 7 or not.This is a feature some Backup application support and some not.
With this feature ,if one path is disconnected from the tape ,the backup will failover to other path ,just like the MPIO to SAN .It's multi-path for tapes .

This functionality has not been specifically tested. If the corresponding driver supports this feature, it should also work with VB&R. However, only actual tests are likely to give a conclusive answer.
