Tape over multiple days

Post by FNUK19 » Apr 18, 2019 7:54 am

So I have a small environment (20VMs or so) backing up nightly via incrementals to a NAS with a full done every Friday
After the NAS incrementals are finished, they are replicated to my tape-drive (an HP 8 tape autoloader)

This weekend is a Bank Holiday in the UK, meaning that there will be no-one here to change tapes on Friday or Monday nights.

My autoloader has enough space to load all the tapes I need

1x Thursday night (incremental)
4 x Friday night (full)
1 x Monday night (incremental)

But the question is is Veeam intelligent enough to figure out that's what i've done and is there a specific order in which the tapes need to be loaded?

Hello and welcome to the community ICT,

Can you please clarify you setup:

- Are you using single media pool to keep all the tapes?
- What's the schedule for your backup to tape job?
