Now I'd like to backup the VBK to tape during the weekend and archive the VRB files of the reversed incrementals to tape on a daily basis.
Actually a transform occurs only after full backup has occured. I think that you should conduct some experiments to see how long that would take in your environment, maybe it will be a reasonable amount of time.would be that it takes longer then creating a Full backup.
Just make sure that your Full goes to Tape firsta and it's the same tape where your future incrementals are going to reside at. Also please take a look at this thread as the configuration mentioned there might be matching your needs.File backup jobs:
Daily VIB to tape
Weekly VBK to tape
Correct.FFI: when retention is policy is met, it applies the first incremental to the Full.
Not exactly. Synthetic full is a .vbk that is sythesized of many .vibs. In other words in order to construct synthetic full VBR takes as much data as possible from previous .vibs. Please check this article to see an animation of how the whole thing works.Synthetics: Full backup is created at scheduled day by injecting all incrementals to previous VBK?
Correct. Please also keep in mind that you can use Virtual Fulls in your Tape jobs.With both I think I will meet the requirement that I will be able to restore a Full VBK (from a weekend) with additional VIBs (from subsequent backup created after the VBK).
So basically restore tuesday nights server on Wednesday by restoring last weekends Full and VIBs from Monday and Tuesday.
when looking into my tape jobs, i don't have any Virtual full backup option.
