Daily Full (Virtuall) Backup to Tape

Post by Barry Ricoh » Dec 30, 2017 6:46 pm

Hello Forum,
Yesterday i have installed the new B+R Trial on our Server.
I want to set up the following szenario.

Backup Job to Disk
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
Full Ink Ink Ink Ink Ink Ink

And to Tape (Tape is stored outside)
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
No Full Full Full Full Full No

I will keep the Disk Files for 2 Weeks
And in addition i want to copy the BtD Files to a NAS (second Place)

Can you tell me how to set up the Jobs (especially the Tapejob)

Thankyou in advance and have a good new year.

Hi Barry,

Happy new year to you too!

To use virtual fulls for tape job you source job must by forever forward incremental. If that’s ok – all you need to do is to specify the needed days in virtual full backup to tapethe schedule.

Also you need to configure Backup Copy job so that it copies source backups to NAS. Please note, that you might need to configure a gateway server residing as close to NAS as possible for better performance.
