GFS Daily Tapejob not every day

Post by matthiasv » Mar 05, 2019 7:43 am

Is there a way to exclude days in the GFS Daily tapejob?

We have the problem, that we run weekly/monthly/quaterly/yearly job on sunday. But at saterday, there is no employee at work to change the tape. So that we have to insert the weekly/monthly/quaterly/yearly tape on friday. But in that case, veeam would try to write the daily tapejob from saturday to the weekly/monthly/quaterly/yearly tape.

Is there a way to solve this issue?

Best regards,
Matthias

Hello Matthias and welcome to the community!
You can choose particular tapes to be used for daily and weekly/monthly/yearly media sets.
Thanks!

Hi Shestakov,
yes, i have choosen particular tapes for each type of GFS Tapes, but we have a single tape drive. And when i insert the daily tape for saturday, then the weekly backup on sunday doesnt have a type. When i insert the weekly tape for sunday, then the daily backup on saturday doesnt have a tape.
Do you know if i can solve this issue?

Best regars, and thanks for your answer,
Matthias

How about skipping daily tape backups on Saturdays?

Is there a way to configure that skipping?

There is no UI option, however workaround with powershell script may work. Which will disable the job after Friday run and enable it back on Sunday.
