How to design the tape system in the Library
We have a 24 tape library. The first half holds 12 tapes and I have that labeled as "Robotic library 0001 [0001..0012]" and another that has 12 tapes labeled as "Robotic library 0001 [0013..0024]".
My backup jobs first run a "Full" backup on Fridays to disk then to tape. I have assigned ...... [0001..0012] as the tapes for the Full backup.
Then the incrementals are ran Mon - Thur and use the tapes on the other side .....[0013..0024].
How do I know which tapes are used?
I need to off load those tapes to another site daily, how do I know which tapes to place off site for each of the backups??
