Hello,

Did not find it in Veeam or in the user guide.

It’s good question and you are welcome.

P.S. GFS tape job has this option at schedule step too.

Yes, i have seen the option in GFS Tape jobs.
And I have seen "Perform drive cleaning automatically" in library options. :D
And I have seen sequences in media sets are sorted correct. :D

All my wishes fulfilled even though christmas is not till next month. :wink:

How exactly does this new feature work?

1) If the tape Jobs runs out of available tapes: will the backup Job be on hold until an Operator will finally adds tapes?
2) If the tape Job is queued and waits for privious tape Jobs to finish: will this prevent the backup Job from running?

Tanks for clearifying!

VBR will wait for new tape to be inserted. Timer is set to 72 hours (same logic as in previous VBR versions).
2) If the tape Job is queued and waits for privious tape Jobs to finish: will this prevent the backup Job from running?

Backup job is paused by tape job only during transform operations.
