Tape copy (weekly) from repository

Veeam Logoby sfbi » Mon Dec 05, 2016 10:31 am

I've a Job executed every day (1 day full + 6 incremental).
The repository retention is set to "2" (in this mode I have: 1 full + 6 inc + 1 full + 6 incr)
Every day, at the end of this job, the backup is write to tape (with a LTO library/jukebox) into a media pool

Now I need to export a copy of the last week (only 1 full + 6 inc), every week, to another media pool, but the tape job (Backup to tape) can be only:

- Backup jobs
- Backup Repositories

How I can do this?

Best Regards

You can't copy from tape to tape. You need to make a second job with the original source jobs.

Tape to tape copy is outside of tape functionality currently offered, so having two separate tape jobs is a way to go. Thanks.
