Hi, I have like 30 VMs over 5 ESXi hosts. Currently they are running reverse incremental backups. I am using Veeam backup version 220.127.116.112.
I am currently running backups to the physical server's local disk. Its a mix of local disks (D:\) and a iSCSI attached storage (E:\).
The problem is that some are running daily backups and some are running on both Saturdays and Sundays (in case of failure) and some only on Sundays.
So how do I perform a one time full backup to tape ?
- I have already created a "2016" media set with 8 tapes, I have about another 10 tapes in the free zone.
- If I set "single VM" to tape jobs, I cannot control when it will backup to tape, and will it save many backups to tape ?
- If I set one huge job, will it save many copies to tape, especially the daily backup jobs ?
