I am still getting to grips with how Veeam works so maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree here. But this is what I would like to achieve:
Daily Incrementals to Local Disk repository for my Physicals, VMs and a CIFS/SMB share.
Virtual/Synthetic Fulls sent to Daily Tapes (MON, TUE, WED etc).
So I can recover everything from yesterday with one tape (for DR purposes). Due to the size of my infrastructure I can only fit a single copy of everything.
I had an occasion where the newly inserted tape was not recognized as being online and backups to tape did not happen. So that's why I am interested in automatic inventory and as I just need a fresh full copy of everything Automatic erase would also help me...I think!
