- daily reversed incremental job
- daily copy job with 4 weekly GFS fulls
- weekly tape job of the daily copy job to the weekly media pool => 1 full backup on tape
- monthly tape job of the daily copy job to the monthly media pool => 1 full backup on tape
- no increntals to tape
If I configure that the monthly tape includes all fulls since the last monthly run.
- forward incremental job with synthetic full
- weekly tape job of the daily backup job to the full media pool => 1 full backup on tape
- daily tape job of the daily backup job to the incremental media pool => 5 incrementals on tape
Create a backup to tape job, disable processing of increments, set a weekly schedule for it, and make it create a virtual full backup on the very same day that it runs. Same applies to additional monthly job.
Or you don't want for a backup to tape job to copy GFS fulls?
Is there any possiblity to miss the weekly job when the mothly runs?
Yes, I don't like to copy the GFS full to the tape. Just the newest point of the copy job as a full backup.
You mean to let the monthly job overrun the weekly one? Only by disabling/enabling unneeded job either manually or automatically (PowerShell).
May I ask you why? GFS restore points are created solely for long term archival purpose and tapes seem to be perfectly inline with this idea.
Hmm, currently to achieve the described GFS scenario certain workarounds are required, and those might be complicated.
