Full backups daily using Synthetic backups
I am required to make a full backup daily on tape.
I have 4TB diskspace for B2D, a LTO5 tape drive and about 1.4TB of data to backup.
What I want to do is :
- Create a weekly full backup to disk.
- Create daily incremential backups to disk.
- Use the weekly full + daily incremential to make a synthetic full backup to tape.
Is this possible ?
Should I make the Full + incremential + synthetic on B2D, and then duplicate it to tape, or is it OK to put the synthetic directly to tape ?
I have tried the sythetic-to-tape a few times, but I always end up with a synthetic job stuck at "Loading Tape".
