Sorry to necro this thread but I've been running into the exact same logic problems with how I've been trying to setup tapes. If Dailies can't be included in the standard GFS pool, then when setting up the backup job job there should really perhaps be setup different. For myself as an example:
1. I create a new job
2. Select the backup to disk jobs I want to include
3. Now this is where things get derailed. I want my full backups to go to my GFS pool, but I still want my dailies to go to the pool I've made specifically for them. However when I select my GFS pool for my fulls it gives me no options for incremental. The only time I get an options for incremental is when I select my dailies pool, but again I don't want to backup full jobs via the the daily pool, I want that in my GFS pool.
Ultimately it would be nice to see a daily option in the GFS; however if that's not possible the following would be nice to see. When settings up the job it would be nice to see Incremental Backup come before Full Backup so you could specify that your .vib go to the daily pool (if you even want dailies), and then the second menu be for Full Backups where you can specify your GFS pools. It just seems like a backward process to require two jobs to accomplish what could be done in one. This is especially frustrating because if having two jobs is the only option then I don't want my "daily" job to do any full backups, but I'm forced to.
