Yes, we have two separate tape jobs – one Backup to tape another is file to tape. You are referring to backup to tape job which could be either “linked” to backup to disk job or to the whole repository – in both cases it would wait until new backup’s appear and then fire them to tape media. By the way in the backup to tape job schedule you can set this job to run as soon as this backup files are created (or use classic schedule)1. What to copy to tape and how?
Media set in VBR is a portion of tapes taken from media pool to allocate backup files. Media set creation and retention should be specified in media pool options, and once done - will be processed automatically.2.Media Sets
Item level restore is currently not supported, so you would have to restore complete vmdk and then use Veeam item level restore.3.Restore of a single file
The GFS retention option currently is not supported, however please take a look at workaround described in this thread4.Archive with GFS
But which one of my two? (see above) And what exactly is on my tape if I use reversed incremental and only Full backups? The last full backup that might be a few hours or days old or will this tape back job create a synthetic full backup with the latest incrementals?
Archive with GFS
.. how do you handle that the monthly job should superseed the weekly job? I shedeuld the weekly job to run on friday 21h and the monthly job on the first friday of the month. How the system decide which job has priority?
.. what exactly is copyed into this repository if you have copy job of a backup job that should keep backup in GFS scheme. Full backups (vib-files) or incrementals?
.. if people forget to but in the right tape, how can I cancel the tape copy job after eg. 10min?
If you have to manually stopping jobs that's simply not practical… other annoying thing is, that you can send mails for all Jobs but tapes
And what I'm also missing is the Option in the Job to append or overwrite. How is this handeled? For example if I put in the monday tape one week later will the tape be overwritten or appended? What happens when tape is full? There is no option that says how long a media is allowed to append and also not what has to be done when a medias retention period is over. Shall it be overwritten or appended?
