How to backup multiple servers with one job and one single LTO drive ?

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have upgraded BE to 2012 version and I'm a bit disappointed. In the previous version, I created a job with multiple servers selection and I asked it to eject the media at the end of the job (after every servers have been backed up), it was running fine.

In 2012 when I use the "eject" option, it ejects the media NOT after all the servers are backed up but AT THE END of every job included in the whole selection. (my english is not famous, I wish you could understand what I mean)

It is a single drive and not a library so I can't put another media when the previous one is ejected...

My purpose is to make COMPLETE backups to ONE tape every day and eject it only when everytihing is backed up, is there a basic way to achieve this ?

Thank you for your help ! :)

Do I have to schedule "eject" every morning ? (if a backup takes longer time thant expected, does "eject" will be done after the job ?)

I have configured tape ejection every day and it's working... For the moment ! :)
