Does tape unload between job?
Created: 04 Jul 2012 | 2 comments
I´m a BE TSA, got a quiestion, please answer:
NOTE: Using an Autoloader
After Each job finishes it rewinds the tape and places the tape again to the same or diferent slot as before.
The next Job starts, it imports 1 Tape and Appends to it.
This usually take up to 15 min everytime the next job runs, depends
BEFORE when I could select all my SQL Instances in the SAME JOB it didn´t ejected the tape each time it swiched from one SQL instance to another and rewinded the tape and then appended to ti.
His jobs used finished in 5-7 hours.
Now it´s taking up to 12 hours to BACKUP The same SQL Instances on a 1 job per server way.
NOTE: You´ve stated that This script will start Job2 and then immediately start Job3 because it does not wait for Job2 to finish. This also means that there would be no job history for Job2 in the job results file
Does it rewind the tape, eject it and append to it if the jobs are CHAINNED? or it continues using the same tape up to that point?
or is the same are individual jobs, between each job they lose about 15 min. everytime a new job starts?
