Is it possible to only backup some VM's from a Job to tape?

Post by Blue407 » Jun 03, 2016 7:43 am

Hi All

As per the thread title, I have a backup job that backs up 7 VM servers to disk, however I don't have space to put all of them onto tape as full backups each day. One in particular is a image backup server, which doesn't need archiving to tape.
Is there any way to only have some VM's from the backup to disk job then backup to tape? or is the only solution to further split up the original backup to disk job into 2 separate jobs, those I want to then put to tape and those I don't?

Thanks in advance for ideas and suggestions :D :D

You can enable per-VM chain in the settings of backup job and use files to tape job to archive chain of needed VM to tapes. Thanks.
