And what if the VM backup job runs till after 21:00? Will the backup to tape job still run, because it started and is waiting for new restore points from 19:00?
When the job runs it perfectly writes the files to tape. Around 23:20 the job is finished.
After that the job starts again, because the scheduled time window is till 00:00.
Another option is to change As new backup files appear to After this job and choose the source job.
This part does disturb me. Do you have any other files appear at 23:20? What is being copied there?
"If some linked backup jobs are still running, wait for up to … hours". What is your setting here?
Do you know if it will work to schedule the tape job at a moment the linked backup is finished for sure?
Will it still detect the new restore points to archive them to tape (because they appeared already)?
What if the VM backup job takes longer than 1h and runs till 22:00? Will the backup to tape job keep waiting for new restore points after 20:00?
1) It will run and archive restore points to tape when the source job is already finished (no need for scheduling at the same time)
2) When the source job finishes out of the schedule of the backup to tape job it will finish without archiving anything to tape
3) When the backup to tape job started archiving files to tape and that process goes out of the schedule it still finishes the process (no automatic cancel)
4)When the backup to tape job has a schedule from 08:00 till 09:00 and the job takes till anytime before 09:00 to finish, that will trigger the job to start again waiting for new restore points.
