This could be done by creating media pool for each day of the week and assigning specific tape mediums to these media pools with the option to pick media from free pool set to off (I guess, you have barcode scanner and all the media is labeled). Such set up would ensure you have unique portion of tape media for each day of the week.
So it would look like this:
Monday Media Pool – 1 week retention from Monday to Monday: Tapes # 1, #2
Tuesday Media Pool – 1 week retention from Tuesday to Tuesday: Tapes # 3, #4
Wednesday Media Pool – 1 week retention from Wednesday to Wednesday: Tapes # 5, #6
Thursday Media Pool – 1 week retention from Thursday to Thursday: Tapes # 7, #8
Friday Media Pool – 1 week retention from Friday to Friday Tapes # 9, #10
The organization unit for tape media retention is a media pool, you can split tape media and specify the rotation you need for every media pool, then point backup to tape job or file to tape job to the created media pools. Yes, assigning slot to tape job currently not possible but if you have barcode reader, and all tape media was labeled - you could identify each tape media after eject operation?
For example, if someone comes to me and says I need to restore a file from December, I would take the December month end backup tapes that I have labeled, restore to disk, and then restore the file from image.
You can look over the backup to tape catalogue in the B&R console, locate the file (or backup) and hit restore. System would tell you which barcoded media should be loaded into the library in order to complete the restore.
There is not an easy way to send the command to unlock it quickly apparently.
Yes, currently there is no such option in console.
