B&R Version 8 Support Case # 00679437
When I run a tape backup of the repositories the progam only uses 1 out of 6 available tape drives. I have 9 CIF shares as repositories. I would expect all 6 of my available drives to come into play. Support told me no, that you need a backup for each repository and a separate tape pool for each. See http://vtricks.com/?p=1909
. This is doable but I believe there should be a better way. I’d like to ask for the developers to look at the possibility of using a drive for each object in a backup (repository, VM, drive, etc). It would make sense and be more in line with typical tape backup. The more streams and drives involved the quicker the backup. Maybe the ability to set the maximum number of drives in a backup as well.
