Hi Guys. I have not yet become fully profecient with one system that management have given me another system to fix and manage. You guys have been great and I really appreciate it. This new system NDUS is setup differently from the one I have been working with you guys on. This does not have vaulting configured. This system does not have any SAN disk attached. All backups are being done directly to tape. I need help in setting this up in such a way that the tapes can be reused for daily-differential, weekly-full, and monthly-full backups.
My aim is:
to have retention levels for the images for the daily-differential be set to 1 week and hope to reuse the tapes after 1 week.
to have the retential levels for the images for the weekly-full be set to 5 weeks and hope to reuse the tapes after 5 weeks
to have the retential levels for the images for the monthly-full be set to 1 year and hope to take these tapes out for off line storage and replace them with new tapes.
I am reading up on this in the Netbackup Admin Guides but it gets a little confusing at times and i want to make the changes with as little interuption as possible.
