First of all, to create synthetic full on weekends you have to select "create synthetic full backups periodically" not "create active full backups". In the backup to tape job settings please go to the "Options step, prees the "Advanced" button, choose "Advanced" folder, check the "Process latest full backup only". Also make sure that by the time the backup to tape job starts all of the source jobs have already finished creating full restore points.We are taking daily incrementals and on weekends I'd like to create a synthetic full backup and copy that to tape. To achieve this, I have selected the 'create active full backups periodically' on all of my backup to disk jobs.
It's a bit hard to explain here what is happening, but I either get 2 copies of full backups on tape, or only 3 or four of my backups get copied to tape.
