I configured a backup copy job, my purpose is to keep a monthly full backup every month. So, in the target configuration, I set:
- Restore points to keep = 2
- Keep the following restore points as full backups for archival purposes: Monthly backup 12 (1 day of the month)
Is it the correct configuration? Or should I set even "Restore points to keep = 12"?
I'm asking this because it seems that this isn't working properly. For some VMs I have an archival full backup from February and another one from April (it seems that March has been "jumped"). For other I have an archival full backup from March and another one from April (it seems that February has been deleted).
Moreover I see some discrepancy in the Backup Copy Properties window (see the image: https://1drv.ms/i/s!As6ZmW6hPA-8hR64a398lBq-_ph4
). For the VM named FAS01 I see:
- A file with Monthly retention with date 12 march 2017 in the "file" section
- No restore point with the same date in the "restore points" section
I hope to have been clear, thank you for help.
