Backup job with 2 different copy jobs

Post by bjdboyer » Aug 26, 2016 7:51 pm

Can i have 2 different copy jobs reference the same source backup job but going to 2 different repository destinations with different retention?

I have a customer asking they want the daily backups going to their vCloud provider with a 30-retention policy.

They also want to have monthly and yearly copies, but not with their vCloud repository. They would have a local repository for that.

Could I define 1 copy job target the vCloud repository with 30-versions and then a 2nd copy job with the local target but turn on GFS and maybe only have a couple copies? The local target copy job would run on a 30-day copy every interval? Rather than schedule monthly and yearly active full backups for the VM's I would think it would be easier to use built-in functions of Veeam rather than re-inventing the process(es).
