Archive everything for a job to tape

Post by bjdboyer » Apr 02, 2018 7:53 pm

Have a customer and we stopped their copy job and they want to keep the repository for that job around for a year due to legal requirements. Rightnow it's taking 10TB of my disk and not really being used. How can I get everything for that job off to tape? it's only full backups of the GFS monthly. no incremental backups. Just full backups.
is there a way to create a tape job to do that and then delete the disk copy so I don't have to go begging for more disk capacity to mgmt?

You can create a backup to tape job and select backup copy job as its source.

While creating backup to tape job, you will be asked whether the latest backup chain or all existing backup chains should be copied to tapes. You should chose the latter option.
