Scheduling duplications with Backup Exec 2012 NOT WORKING !!!!
In reference to this post: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/scheduling-duplications-backup-exec-2012
What PKH says:
"No. For your proposed backup scheme, on the last Sunday of the month, your monthly backup will run and your weekly backup will be superceeded and not run. This is because both jobs start at the same time and the monthly job has a less frequent schedule."
This is not true !!!
I have 4 BE3600 R2 appliciances with 2 MSL2024 tapelibraries on 2 sites, where on each site 1 appliance has a tapelibrary attached.
I have configured a job to: backup to disk, duplicate to disk and finally, weekly duplicate to tape with 4 weeks protection, on the last saturday/sunday of the month 12 months protection and the last saturday/sunday of the year permanent protectedion.
This means that I have to schedule 3 duplication stages for the week, month and year tape.
However last saturday/sunday BOTH month and week dupicate run.
So, how to solve this.
It would be better if Symantec puts back the scheduler from BE2010 !!!!!!!!!!
