Could you go into a little more detail about what you're trying to achieve? I don't understand how writing daily fulls helps you achieve your goal of writing monthly fulls.

sorry it does synthetic fulls weekly. like on a Friday and Saturday depending on the jobs.

I also have the job do an active full at the end of the month.

I want to get monthly fulls to tape. (should it be the sythentic full or the active full) how do I set that up?

Create a backup to tape job, selecting a given backup job as its source, make it process only full backups, enable "process latest full backup chain only" option, set a monthly schedule for it and let it run on the last day of month. Thanks.
