The Update 2 is already in pilot stage (it's being distributed only within support tickets at the moment).

However, the enhancement Dmitry was talking about is scheduled to see the light in version 9.5 coming later this year.

Thanks.

OK - back in May, Dima said he would see if the U2 could include this fix, per my request. Oh well. I"m disappointed that this bugfix isn't being fixed in U2. Why is Veeam calling it an "enhancement"? The behavior I'm seeing is a defect.

Hi Matt,

Option to set 'wait for backup jobs' in hours will be introduced in Update 2 as I promised. Ability to control and modify the tape job's behavior in case its interrupted by running source job will become available in v9.5.

Dima - I think we might be misunderstanding each other. What's happening to me should not be triggered. My tape job is configured to only backup last full, no incrementals, and it starts after we've performed our weekly synthetic fulls. Subsequent nightly incrementals to our Exagrid should *not* affect the tape job, because the incrementals aren't changing the recent synthetic full. Mike Popovski, in case 01790863, stated "what you're running into is a known bug that is planned to be fixed when version 9,5" - so my request was to expedite the bugfix. If that's not happening, then oh well.

But, you reference to this as an enhancement, and referrring to configurable featues, makes me worry we're not talking about the same thing. Please let me know.

Hi Matt,

Sorry for confusion. Support guys and I were talking about exactly same thing – ability to set the highest priority to tape jobs and avoid interruption by source jobs. Unfortunately, it was impossible to push it into next update due the complicity of required code improvements, so we will introduce this functionality in v9.5.
