Exec Backup 2012 Solution

Created: 11 Dec 2012 | 2 comments

Hi all,

 

Currently my company has a backup structure which uses Exec backup 2012 for their daily backups (Write protection for 1 week).

 

My HOD wish to improve the stucture so I suggested the following:

-Daily increment backups 

-Full backup every weekend

Total will be using two IBM tape drives for the above usage.

 

My question is;

If using increment backup, is it possible to have it write protected, say monthly for 1st tape drive and yearly for 2nd tape drive.

 

Any comments or idea will take in considerations.

Thanks for your for time.

This protection isn't set on a hardware level, so no it isn't. This gets set up when you create the INCR job and you set the retention periods (Overwrite Protection Period & Append).

This is where you configure those settings...

Thanks!

Sure.  Just define 2 media sets: One for the incremental backup with an OPP of 6 months and one for the weekly backup with an OPP of 1 year.
