BE 2012 Backing Up Multiple Servers Issue
I have four servers that I want to do a full backup on every week night. Total of 315G of data going on an LTO3 drive. The issue I am having seems to be related to when the backup jobs (A total of 6) are scheduled. All of the backup jobs are scheduled to start between 8:00 and 11:00 PM. One backup job was scheduled to start at 3:00AM. All backup jobs are set to append or overwrite the media, the last job, scheduled for 3:00 AM did not append, it overwrote the previous jobs. I rechecked the the storage settings and it is set to append or overwrite. The last job is only 15G. There was plenty of room on the tape without getting into compression, why did it overwrite all of the previous jobs?
Should the backup schedule for all 6 jobs be set to all start at the same time and just let the program decide when each server gets backed up, or is this a non issue?
On another note: IMHO, Symantec really did not improve things with this version. Just voicing my opinion.
