sunnydays wrote:- What do I configure the schedule to be for the tape job? With the Forward Incremental – Forever Forward, I would select Monthly on the Fourth Friday to ensure that it created a virtual full backup on the fourth Friday. But considering I am trying to move the Weeky 4 VBK from the copy job, what do I configure?
sunnydays wrote:- I am planning to distribute Active full backup jobs across Friday and Saturday, as I am concerned with full backups taking too long and incrementals or copy jobs are missed (6 x Fulls and 6 x Incrementals will run on Friday vice versa for Saturday).
sunnydays wrote:- I have concerns with the backup copy jobs not finishing in time before the next backup? How will this affect things if it was a active full or an incremental backup job?
sunnydays wrote:- When the backup copy job merges the 1x full and 6 x incrementals into a weekly full, what happens the following week? Does the weekly full become the new full and 6 x incrementals will chain with it?
foggy wrote:The fact is you cannot set up periodic active fulls for incremental forever backup mode. Once you configure periodic fulls, you automatically switch to regular forward incremental. And with regular forward incrementals, you will have a whole month of restore points prior to creating an active full. After reaching the number of 14 restore points after this active full, the entire previous chain will be deleted from disk.
