Backup multiple B2D files to a single tape

Created: 26 Nov 2009 • Updated: 26 Feb 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have a limited time window when we can perform backups and would therefore like to create multiple Incremental jobs to simultaneously backup to disk, i.e.

at 19:00 - 1st job would perform an Incremental backup of Server 1, Server 2 and Server 3 to Disk

at 19:00 - 2nd job would perform an Incremental backup Server 4, Server 5 and Server 6 to Disk

Once B2D has completed we would then like to copy the disk backups of Server 1 to 6 to a single tape

We are currently using Backup Exec 12.5, is this possible ?

It looks good, you can simultaneously run two backup jobs to a single backup to disk folder, so incremental backups look good. But, regarding the idea of copying the disk backup to tape, just running a regular backup to do so, would not be recommended. Perform a duplicate backup to achieve that.  For more on duplicate backups:

Please mark it a solution, if this is useful.
