This topic may relate to my needs also. Below is my current setup.
Source disk job: M-Th incrementals, Friday full; 23 restore points, because of limited disk space
Monday tape pool: do not create....; do not protect
Separate Backup to Tape jobs for Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur were setup. A separate Friday Full Backtup to Tape job was setup for full backups only. (We previously only had 1 Backup to Tape job (been using it for 1.5 years) but due to the change in tape behavior from v8 to v9 we were forced to changed our plans)
Monday Backup to Tape settings (the Tue, Wed, Thur plans are similar): main disk job is source; media pool for full backups is the Monday pool which contains only the Monday tape; virtual backup schedule set for Last Saturday of Month in January (the source disk job does a full every Friday so I believe this is not used correct?); incremental backups use the Monday tape also; run on Mondays only
When going through the wizard during the setup, it asked whether to copy all chains or only the lastest chain. I chose latest. During the first run of this new Monday plan, it copied the latest chain (latest vbk, and latest vibs). This all seems correct to me. Then on the following Monday, it wanted to copy the latest Friday vbk again. Is this correct? I was hoping that Veeam would only continue to copy the Monday vibs since the previous Fridays vbk was already copied to tape via the Friday Full to Tape plan.
Is there a way to only copy vibs going forward to these daily M-Thur tapes?
