I have been reading through manuals and forum posts around Tape Media sets, there is allot of references to how these media sets work and the term "Backup session" is used when explaining the operation of specific settings for Media Set creation.
Hoping someone can clear the following up, scenario below.
1. If I have multiple Backup jobs linked to one tape job with "Create New Media set for every backup session" set for the Media Pool, will the multiple backup jobs be considered once "Backup session" even if they are not executed (written to tape) at the same time (Streamed together)?
What I mean by not executed at same time is as follows:
4 x Reverse incremental backups jobs linked to one tape job, 2 x backup jobs completed before Tape job schedule starts however other 2 jobs are still executing (locked files)...
First two start to stream to tape while other two are not accessible yet.. Once the remaining two backup jobs complete will they be considered the same backup sessions and append to the existing tapes used? or not?
Hope that makes sense.
