Veeam Logoby vvklass » Thu Feb 15, 2018 4:09 pm

Hi together

I have one File to Tape Job that occours weekly on sunday on same time and the files should backuped weekly, monthly and yearly.
I have created for that reason 3 Media Pools with the needed Retention time, but how can i set that the last week goes to the monthly, on end year to the yearly and the other weeks of the month to the weekly Media Sets?

I come from the Backup-Exec side an there is no Problem to configure this.

Tank you in advance for any help.

Hi Volkan and welcome to the community!
Do you want write on tapes Veeam backup files or something else?
If only backups, you better use backup to tape job and GFS Media Pool.
Thanks!

I see. In this case I would create 3 jobs: with weekly, monthly and yearly schedule.
You can even try to overcome duplications with powershell script which will disable weekly job on the week when monthly takes place etc.
Thanks!

We don't have Veeam-made scripts for such a case, however you can find some examples from customers on powershell subforum of the community.
Hope that helps.
