Daily Full Backup to Tape

Everything about backing up to tape

[MERGED] Full Backup to tape every day

Veeam Logoby cs@ferropharma.de » Fri Jun 09, 2017 7:32 am

Hi,

I want to backup our virtual server to disk (incremental) and to tape (full) dialy. Therefore the backup mode is incremental with an active full every Friday.

The second target is tape drive where a virtual full should be stored dialy.

Now the problem is that nothing is written to the tape and the job is successfull.

Where is the thinking error?

Thanks Christian

Hi,

You can't have daily virtual full on tape if active fulls are enabled in the source job:
helpcenter wrote:The primary job configuration must not have scheduled synthetic or active full backups. If it does, the virtual full will be disabled even if configured in the tape job.

Thank you

Thanks. When I changed the job to reverse incremental I would have a dialy full which could be written to the tape.

Correct? Should I plan a frequently health job?

Thanks

Are you referring to VM backup automatic health check?

Yes, I asking for the Health check which I can configure at the advanced job settings.

I have to arrange with the idea that I never have to create a full job...

Thanks

You'd better running Surebackup (with storage level corruption verification enabled) regularly. This should be enough to guarantee that backups written to tapes are restorable. Thanks.
