Grandfather-Father-Son backup rotation?
I have some questions about Grandfather-Father-Son backup rotation and Media sets.
I have 20 backup tapes, Symantec Backup exec 10d, Dell power edge server with Windows 2003 server. My backup device is Tandberg TS400 (PV110T Lto2).
No backups on Saturdays and Sundays.
How should I set op my GFS backup rotation scheme? First I thought of this, but some months have more than 4 Fridays.
And on the fourth Friday run my monthly backup
I am really lost :/
I have checked the policy that comes with the program and copied it and try to change the different templates.
And my second question is about media sets. Should I have three media sets? One for daily, one for weekly and one for monthly?
I change backup tape every day.
