So you are using backup to tape job to GFS media pool. (By the way, there was no such feature in VBR 8.0. Maybe v. 9.0 was meant.)

GFS tape job works differently than you've described, it starts searching in previous days' backups only at 00:00 the next day and only if there were no files to copy to tape on the scheduled day (Sunday in your case). See user guide
. To make the job work the way you want you should reschedule it to Saturday so it will process synthetic full backup right after it is created. Also notice that there's no necessity to create full backup on disk as it can be synthesized on tapes directly.

The next major product release will give more flexibility in setting up GFS tape jobs.
