Backup Exec 2012 (required Media Sets before restore)
Ok, so we decided to bite the bullet and moved to BE2012. Slowly we are getting use to the interface. Besides to all the other problems / limitations, I was wondering if the designers of this new UI has taken in the consideration to show the user what are the 'required Medias' before doing a restore.
For example in previous version of BE, before I did a restore, I would browse by 'Resource' I would expand the Server -> Then I would Expand the Drive-> Then I would Right Click on the Backup Job/Date Go to Properties and it would show me which Media(s) holds the backup set (under Media Tab). This way I would retrieve the Required Tapes from the Safe, put it in the Tape Library, and start the Restore process. Please tell me this feature is available in BE2012....
In addition to that I would use that feature, to find out if the a backup job/set has been duplicated to a Tape. Because it would show you all the media that contains the backup job, including B2D and Tapes...
