Monthly media set

Post by Regnor » Mar 21, 2018 10:06 am

Per customer requirement I have to copy restore points of a whole month to tape.
My Problem is that you can only create a new media set daily or once per week, but not once per month, which would waste much tape space.

According to the helpcenter there's a unsupported "monthly" type.

Monthly: not supported.
Is it possible to use this policy or is there an other way to create a new media set only once per month?

Hi Regnor,

New media set will be created automatically if the last tape from the current media set is not in the library and tape job kicks in (for example such tape was exported). If your customer exports tape regularly - you could use 'Never' as an option.
