How to select two tape drives in Backup Exec 2012

Created: 19 Oct 2012 | 2 comments

Hi All,

I have upgraded my BE 2010 to 2012. I'm using an IBM tape loader and recently I have installed a second drive to the loader. I want to know from where I can select the perticular drive for a job.

Go to Backup and Restore tab

Right click on the required server - select Edit Backup - click on Edit under "Backup" (right hand side)

Select - Storage and you will see the device select drop down for each job type (full/incre/diff) on the right side.

If you edit the job & and go to storage and click on drop down it will give you option to select the drive & run the backup job

Hope that helps
