File to tape rotation

Post by vifarrugia » Apr 02, 2018 3:36 pm

Good afternoon,

I would like to create the following file-to-tape rotation:

1) The Media Pool contains only 4 tapes; one for every week
2) Saturday backs up Full, Monday to Friday backs up incremental.
3) Every week, the backups are performed ON THE SAME TAPE.
4) Every Saturday, a new tape is used.
5) After 4 tapes are used, the first tape will be reused.

How do I configure this tape rotation and retention period?

Thank you,

Product Manager

A file to tape job pointed to media pool (with weekly media set and 4 week protection period) should do the trick. Thanks.
