Is there a recommended way of scheduling jobs to ensure that, ASAP after a backup job has completed, the linked tape job runs before the off-site copy job runs?
I'd basically like to ensure that I have a (quick) 2nd local tape copy of a backup before the (slow) off-site copy begins, but am unsure of the best way to schedule it as such.
Best practice is to configure the copy job sync time to be a few mins after the source job is scheduled to start, so that effectively kicks in once it sees new RPs available, but I'd like to effectively achieve the same kind of thing to tape *first* - what happens if I schedule the tape job to be 10 mins after source job starts, then the copy job scheduled 10 mins after the tape job?
Ideally I'd like to avoid having to create big wasteful time windows - I know that you can configure a "wait" time for source jobs on the tape job, but that doesn't really have much to do with copy jobs...
