we're using Veeam B&R with two Backup repositories, located an two mirrored storage devices, located at two sites.
additionaly there is a LTO-7 environment to save everything on tape monthly.
The first repository is used for a incremental backup job, which runs daily and keeps the restore points for about a month.
The second repository should be used as a kind of archive/longterm online repository, where all restore points are held which have been deleted by retention policy of the first job.
that we can use a longer retention on this repository.
The backup copy job runs daily all-time. but with this settings a have also all 31 restore points on the second target and loose space.
Is there anyway to run a rotation like
- Backup daily on the first repository, keep restore points for 1 month
- move restore points older than 1 month to the second repository, keep them with a different retention
- optional: use advanced retention policy like: keep 1 month every day, keep 2-3 months every second day, keep until 6 months weekly restore points
thanks for your ideas and answers
