HP Data Protector Express

Post by ZackAngelo »

We're trying to dump Veeam backup files to tape using the utility that was included with our HP Tape Library, HP Data Protector Express Basic.

Is anyone else using this software for tape transfer? If so, what are you using to script the kickoff of the tape backup. As far as I can tell, there's no way to start an event that's synchronized to the completion of multiple Veeam backup jobs.

May be PowerShell script that is run as a post-job script scheduled 1 minute after the first job starts. Once started, this script would start periodically querying statuses for all jobs (say, every 60 sec). As soon as all jobs had run, and report success, the script would kick in the HP DataProtector job that archives produced backup files to tape.
