Tape Library Management (Backupexec)
All my jobs are backed up to disk on the Media Server first and then duplicated to Tape. I am using a Dell TL2000 Tape Library which holds 24 tapes and we have a pool of 23 tapes where we duplicate the backups. I am unable to ascertain what is the best way to manage if we need to retain the backups for 3 weeks. Currently I can see it is appending to the same tape most of the time. Is there a way I could force the backup for each week day when we do incremental backups to be on a seperate tape rather than appending to one tape? Further to that the full backup on Friday evening needs to happen on a different set of tapes and with a retension period of 3 weeks. What is the best way to achieve the same?
