We are reworking our DR plans, and focus is on ability to recover from tapes according to server priority.
To be able to do that we have tried several options for storing Veeam data as part of the tape jobs to GFGS archive. This does not work..
We can select a repository to add to GFS tapes, but the repository setup as target for configuration backup on decentral VBR servers shows no content.. Based on answer from support (ticket #02034409) this is currently by design - as config backup is not a 'real' Veeam backup job.
Next option is to setup a tape file job - selecting the folder manually. This work - but does not allow GFS volumes as target... which only leaves option to use a full additional tape to store just the configuration
Please provide a option to allow Tape file job to utilize GFS medias - this to allow us to store config backups and catalog data together with backups - ensuring full consistency and easy handling in case of DR to new equipment..
