If i want to do two weeks of backups, one backup to tape daily (I know it's a waste of space)
I can get my jobs to tape however they continue to write to the same tape continually until the said tape is full.
If i want to do two weeks of backups, one backup to tape daily (I know it's a waste of space), and then have the next backup run to the next tape how would i configure this?
What I'd like to do is similar to how I have backups for BE. I'd like to do two week sets (i.e -Mon Wk 1, Tues Wk 1, Wed Wk1, etc) and then (Mon Wk2, Tues Wk2, Wed Wk2, etc). Mon thru Sunday for each week. But I'd like to just label each tape once, and then rotate by Week so that Veeam will pull Mon Wk1's tape; write the backup to it, kick it out and then backup to the next tape the following day. This would make it easier for my backup admin so he can keep track of tapes and just pop in two weeks of tapes in the deck and pull each previous days for off site storage.
So I will need to select create a new media set, this will write the next job to the next available tape?
Is there a specific naming convention that I need to use that veeam will recognize or does it pull from a specific slot number order?
