VMware CBT and Backup Exec 2012 Jobs
We're running Vsphere 5.1 and Backup Exec 2012 and currently we do two types of backup: a full VMDK to tape at 6PM and an agent backup. We have around 7TB of data and it takes the best part of 12 hours to complete the schedule.
I want to change the backup types and make use of CBT in VMware. Obviously this will mean changing the job types but to what?
If I create a new job the default is "Full every 1 week on a Friday" and with a following stage of "Incremental at 11pm and every 1 day".
Will this suffice?
Also, I'd like to do away with the agent backups - how do I go about restoring individual files and folders without using the agent?
