VBK from multiple servers to tape

Veeam Logoby stabi-lso » Thu Nov 17, 2016 2:46 pm

In one of our 'File to Tape Backup' jobs we have folders of multiple servers.
After processing one server the tape is ejected and the job is waiting for a new tape (even if there's still space available).

Is it possible to copy folders of multiple servers to one tape?

Hi,

What "Media Set" settings do you have for the media pool?

How much space is typically left on a tape? Is this a consistent number, say from 5 to 20 %? If so, it seems to be a limitation put by vendor itself, rather than by us. Thanks.

The setting of the media set is:
Do not create, Always continue using current media set

There was 1,6 TB space left on the tape.

Since we've upgraded to 9.5 it's working :-)

Thanks for your replies.
