Synthetic full backup - duplicate to tape

Hi,

When doing a synthetic full backups (incremental) that has a secondary job to duplicate to tape. What will be written to the tape? incremental or full backup?

Thanks

Steve, do you mean what will be written to tape on the day when synthetic full is scheduled at? It depends on what is selected in the tape job itself.

Just to clarify: virtual full backup won’t be created on tape since your disk job has synthetics enabled (so virtual full backup on tape schedule is going to be ignored).
