I am seeking some advise on Veeam and its tape backup configuration.
We are migrating from BackupExec, so please correct me if I need to change my mindset and the way in which I am approaching things.
Backup VMs then copy the backup data to Tape on a Daily, weekly and Monthly Basis
Copy full backup to Tape once the Weekend job has finished and incrementals to be copied to tapes labels by their day.
Monday Incremental will go to the MON Tapes housed in library slot 1 & 2
Tuesday Incremental will go to the TUE Tapes housed in library slot 3 & 4
Saturday Full Backup will go to the Weekly Tapes housed in library slots 21 - 26
Is this setup even possible with Veeam?
This is the behaviour we have been working with for the last 5 years with BackupExec, so if there is a better way with Veeam, please do enlighten me.
The only other way I can see doing this is to use media pools and a different job for each day.
I don't really like this approach as it would leave us with more jobs to update when new servers are added.
Also, if anyone can point me towards a good Blog or set of documents other than the Veeam Deployment or Best Practise guide, that would be very very helpful!
