Backup Exec 2012 Quickstart Edition and Dell RD1000

Created: 12 Dec 2012 | 1 comment

I'm new to BE 2012 and I'm really struggling how to setup this product with an RD1000. Basically I want to:

1. Rotate RD1000 disk cartridges for use with weekly backups.

2. Perform Differential backups Monday - Thursday and perform a Full backup on Friday

3.Ejected media will be rotated offsite until needed.

How do you configure the RD1000 storage device, disk cartridges, and backup/rotation schedule?

1) define a media set with the correct OPP and AP

2) define storage on your RDX storage.

3) define a backup job.  You will get your full backup and an incremental backup.  Delete the incremental backup and add a differential backup.

In your jobs, target the storage defined on your RDX and the media set defined above. I am not sure whether the Eject after job complete option will work for RDX cartridges, but you can try it.

For more details of the above steps, read the Admin Guide which can be found in the BE installation directory.
