Backup Exec 2012 Disk Selection
I have a slight issue with my current Backup Exec 2012 configuration on a Windows 2008 R2 server.
I currently have 3 drives hooked up and configured for backups, Drives A-B all of which are 2TB in size. I have them setup into a drive pool and then I have all my backups (3 total for a total size of 1.9TB) pointing to the drive pool.
The Problem: When Drive A has, say, 500GB left. Backup Job 1 kicks off, chooses that drive. An hour later, the 2nd backup kicks off, also chooses that drive, and then the 3rd. Resulting in 1 drive becoming full and the last 2 backups sit there trying to run forever because of the "Loading Media" error when the drive fills up.
The Question: How can I program Backup Exec so that it will look at the drives in the drive pool and be able to determine which drive has enough space for the backup, and then run said backup on the drive it chooses? For Example, Drive A has hit its "Warning" Threshold yet the backups still presist to choose that drive, most likely because it is the first drive in the device pool.
