Duplicate Jobs - How to

Created: 26 Sep 2012 | 4 comments

Apologize if this has been asked before......

 

Just upgraded to BE 2012 about a month and a bit ago.

 

We use backup-to-disk for our servers.  At month end we archive month end data to tape for archival purposes.

IN BE 2010 we used to just create a duplicate Job which allowed me to select month end from all of the resources and redirect to tape.

 

I cannot seem to locate that functionality rather easily in 2012.  Does it exist.  I browsed through the admin guide however found limited information.

To duplicate, just add stage in job properties. In Admin Guide look for Add Stage section on Page 183 - 184

Mike,

 

         You could possibly configue a backup job as a server group and backup all to tape.  This does not performom the backups in one job but you are able to manage them from a single "group" location. Please view the doc listed below and let me know if it helps.
