Backup To Tape : Keep Data until Tape is Full

Veeam Logoby GEVEWE » Thu May 04, 2017 9:23 am

Hi Guys,

I'm using VEEAM 9.5 to Backup VM's on My Hyper-V server. I have configured my backup job as below :
- Backup Destination is to Disk
- Incremental : Monday - Friday
- Full : Saturday

I also configure Secondary Target to Tape :
- I have Single Tape Drive (No Robotic).
- I backup only Full Backup. Scheduled when the Primary Backup Job Finished.

I want the data always append to the tape until the tape is full, when the tape is full i want the oldest Full Backup will be overwrite.
Can I do that? What is the policy/settings that I have to create on Media Pool?

Regards,
Gustri

Hi Gustri,
You need to configure Media Pool to always continue using current media set, so the tapes will be written to the end.
Thanks!
