Problem Backup and Replication and Agent - Backup to tape

Hello veeam-team!

We have veeam Backup&Replication Enterprise Edition and Veeam Agent.

We have two backup jobs: we use the B&R for backups of our VMs and the Veeam Agent for a single server backup. The Agent use the Repository of B&R.
Once a week i write all the data of the disk-backups to a tape. Now i want to write both backup-Jobs in one session to the tape. But this is not supported by veeam.

This is an restriction by veeam, but why?? It would by a great benefit if this Option is available in the future!!!

We had always contact with support and i create a case: Veeam Support - Case # 02199862 - error backup to tape job - failed to detect backup files

I had contact with a Support engineer and we found a Limitation: ... tml?ver=20

"Backup to tape jobs processing Veeam Agent backups have one limitation: you cannot link jobs that process Veeam Agent backups to other jobs. Use other scheduling options instead."

Many thanks in advance for a short Feedback

Kind regards
