Easy question, but I cannot seem to find an answer online:

It's possible do a 'backup to tape' job and a 'file to tape' job on same media?

thanks all.

I'm on VBR 8 Patch1

short but intense :lol:

Just using same media set for each job?
And retention? Can I set 7 day for each job?

Where I can find a detailed document on tape backup for v8.0?

Thanks again

Christian,

Yes, you can just pick same media pool for both Backup to tape and File to tape jobs. Just make sure you have "Create new media set for every backup session" disabled.

Yes, click "Edit Media Pool" and on the "Retention" step choose Protect data for 1 week (or 7 days).

There is a Tape Device Support part in the Veeam B&R User Guide. Another helpful part of the guide describing administration tasks for tape is Working with Tape Media section.
The document in .pdf and ebook formats can be found at Veeam Help center website.

More information can be easily found in the forum`s topics.
Also, don`t hesitate to ask if you still have any questions. Thanks!

Thanks Shestakov.
I think I'll have some other question soon.
I'll start my test when open case 00733150 will be closed... and I will reuse my media :shock:

As far as I understand you just opened the support case today.
Please keep working with your support engineer and ask me for additional help if needed. Thank you!
