So what happens if there are a full back up on Friday, an incremental on Saturday and one on Sunday, then I do a Backup to Tape job? Will I get three files on the tape? Will I get three files on the tape?
Will I be able to restore VMs as they were on Sunday by using only the tape (let's say the backup server and everything in the room burned to the ground)?
What if the full backup on Friday failed? How will that affect the Sunday tape job?
Ok, so just to make sure I understand you correctly: under my current setup I will get a vbk and two vib files on the tape? So when a Backup to Tape, using a Backup to Disk job as source, is run it actually copies the latest vkb file, along with all subsequent vib files, onto the tape. If there are no new such files since the last time that job was run it will not do anything.
I am still not sure why one of the disk backups were not present in the latest backup to tape. As I said, I have two disk backup jobs and both of those are included in my weekly tape backup as source. But last backup only contained one of the backups. When I try to run the tape backup job again I get the "nothing to backup" message.
I have not checked "Process incremental", so perhaps the reason why one job was missing was because of some failures and thus no full backup, only incrementals.
Maybe there's no new full backups?
If I run a tape backup, with two backup jobs as source, and only one of them has created new backup files, will the History log for the tape backup tell me that it didn't find any new files for that specific job or will it just be missing?
I have spotted another issue: sometimes the backup to disk jobs doesn't contain all VMs. How does Veeam build the VM list?
