apologies if there is already something similar around, but I need to clarify that for a huge copy job setup that I have to implement for a new customer.
The situation is as follows:
Customer has around 100 VMs and demands the following retention policy:
!!Archived backups should always be taken on sunday!!
I am achieving this by having
a) 5 normal backup jobs that runs every night and are keeping 7 restore points.
b) 1 copy job that is based on the backup jobs and has the following settings:
Restore Points to keep: 2 (minimum if I am not mistaken)
Weekly Backup: 4 - Sunday 00:01
Monthly Backup: 12 - Last Sunday of the Month
Yearly Backup: 99 - Last Sunday of the Year
Schedule: Copying is allowed on Sunday/Monday
My question now is, what is the correct value for the "copy every..." setting in the first page?
I would assume that it is every 7 days, starting at 00:01. Will this - togehter with the allowed copy window of sunday/monday - guarantee that there is always sunday's restore point copied?
I hope that i have explained it clear. If anything is dubious, feel free to ask.
I am looking forward to your responses!
