  • Tape Drive Backup on Server 2008R2

    Hi Friends,
    I'm here working on a domain environment with WinSvr 2008 R2 as PDC and WinSvr 2003STD as ADC.

    Issue : In order to backup here we are using a HP DAT72 External USB device previously on server2003 machine . Now i've installed the device on 2008R2 server But, When I go to the Windows Server Backup option it doesn't have a Option to backup on Tape drive.

    All I need now is to take Backup using Tape drive on the Server 2008R2 machine, If this is not possible on this OS please give your suggestions.



    Waiting for your Reply/Suggestion ......

    Hi naresh

    I know you can't backup on tape on server 2008. Not sure if they brought back this feature on server 2008 r2 though. In server 2008 you need third party products to backup to tape,server 2008's default backup does not support it

      nope. must have 3rd party utility.

      2008 and all varients there of will not let you back up to tape.

          Backup Exec still supports tape drives, but IMHO their day is long past and external HDDs (USB, Firewire or eSATA) are the way to go
