Retention Levels and Retention mappings for Vault and Policy
What is the difference between the retention levels and retention mappings for profiles and policy? Which overrides which? I want to control image expiration through vault. I have set all my policy retention levels to
Daily - Infinity - Level 10,
Weekly - Infinitely - Level 5
Monthly - Infinitely - Level 8
There is no particular reason why I chose those retintion levels. But I had learned that the retention levels need to be the same for all drives to be equally utilized.
The retention levels in my profiles are
Daily - 1 week - Level 14
Weekly - 4 weeks Level 13
Monthly - 1 year - Level 12
The problem I have is when I ran my weekly half of my backup were each written to 1 tape with 1 image. As a result I now have a large amount of tapes. Could any body shed some light on this?
