Backup exec 2012 with HP G2 1/8 AUTOLOADER
I'm new to Backup Exec 2012. I'm struggling to do what I think should be a simple task.......................
Have one backup job of type FULL using partitions 1(slots 1-3) on HP 1/8 AUTOLOADER, running on Friday.
An then have on backup job of DIFFERENTIAL type using partition 2(slot4) on HP 1/8 AUTOLOADER running every day except Friday.......
Firstly I can’t create a separate DIFFERENTIAL job. Maybe this isn’t possible anymore.....
Secondly I can’t configure a 2 step single backup job to use two different partitions on the AUTOLOADER, I select partition 1-3 for my full part of the job, but it won’t allow the second(differential) to use partition 4, I get the following error message.
THE STORAGE POOL YOU HAVE SELECTED IS EMPTY. YOU MUST ADD AN ACCESSIBLE DEVICE TO THE STORAGE POOL BEFORE THIS JOB CAN RUN.
Can anyone advise on the solution?
Basically I want to load three tapes into my AUTOLOADER, 2 in partition 1 and 1 into partition 2, then have a FULL backup run on Friday night(this using the 2 tapes in partition 1)
Rest of the week a DIFFERENTIAL job can then backup only the changes to partition 2, swapping the tape in partition 2 daily until the next FULL backup on Friday....... then we start all over again..
