BE 2012 Storage Solution Needed
I have 2 problems I’m hoping to resolve:
I have a Power Vault 124T that has 2 magazines and each has 8 slots. What I am trying to accomplish is partitioning the robotic library to have 2 partitions with 8 slots in each partition. For example:
Robotic Library 0001 [0001…0008]
Robotic Library 0001 [0009…0016]
The goal is to have the first backup on 0001 to itself and the second backup to 0002 and so on to the last tape 0008 for the last backup. In doing so each backup would have its own tape/slot which shows 745GB capacity.
This would be fine because each server being backed up would use 30GB on a full backup which would leave plenty of room for growth. How can I designate a backup to just use a particular mail slot?
The second problem I have not found a resolution online is that some servers allow me to back up the system state and some don’t. I have tried “Test/Edit Credentials” it fails for some servers, yet others it allows me to backup. All are Windows 2003 ENT. R2 servers with the same local administrator account.
