Hello

On the latest versions of TSM for SQL Server (v7.1.3), is there are still restrictions regarding metadata destination? (not on removable storage)

Many thanks !

Hi,
You can put it wherevere. But, for restore tasks, it is preferred to have it on disk. It saves you a lot of waiting and fighting for tapes.

Thanks !
So, I will test with a specific management class for metadata (with a dedicated disk stgpool).
For cons, I have to externalise long terms backups (offsite). I do not know if it is compatible.
