I see the point in having a backup copy job which maintains the GFS retention policy based on restore points instead of backup files.
But under certain circumstances, I see a possibility of optimizing this process which would be of significant benefit for a job setup like mine.
Each backup job is set to perform active fulls on a weekly base. While trying some different job settings, this is the one which seems to suit our needs the most.
I would really like to have the possibilty to automatically keep some of the weekly active fulls as my "weekly" or "monthly" backups as long as they were successful.
In case of unsuccessful weeklies, the following incrementals might be kept as well so that there is a successful backup of each VM in the job.
Is this far-fetched or would this be of use for anyone else as well?
Thanks for having a look at this.
