Feature Request: Increase Retention Time on existing tapes

Post by russej » 1 person likes this post


Can a sensible feature be made where [full] backups on a GFS Media Pool have their retention's increased? It could be done at the pool level or tape level -- whatever is more sensible and code-able.

Use case:
  • Business requirement changes to retain manufacturing data from 10 years to 30 years
  • Veeam admin inadvertently sets the quarterly backup far too short and recognizes his mistake after the fact :oops:
Veeam support recommended I post my request here.

Hello Jim,

Thanks for your post. If am not mistaken we have this feature available in the simple media pool. GFS media pools will have this functionality too in upcoming versions.
