Hi All, we are just putting a new installation of backup Exec 2012 in place and I have (hopefully!) a quick question on how tape rotation works.
So here's the plan:
Currently we have a bunch of scratch media (tapes) in a library.
I have configured media sets for daily, weekly, monthly and annual jobs. Tapes are allocated automaticaly to the media set through the backup job.
Daily jobs have an append period of 24hrs and an overwrite protection period of a week. We have also setup a virtual vault, tapes are set to move to the vault after 1 days and be returned after 8 days.
So my question is, when tapes are returned from the vault will they still be assigned to a partoiculare media set, i.e. once a tape that was used in the daily media set has been returned from the vault be automaticaly used by weekly, monthly and annual jobs or will we have to manualy erase them?
All jobs are set to "apend to media, or overwrite if no appendable is avilable"
Thanks in advance!
