Hi Support Team,

           I have set several duplication to tape job in Backup Exec 2012 SP3. I found that when the source job failed, duplicate job still be run. I think this shold not be a good design.

Best Regards,

Sukanya S.

Well, it would yes. Even though the initial job failed, the duplication job will run as per the rules. If the duplicate job runs through successfully it will succeed.

I think what you're asking for here is a rule that says:

If initial job fails, do not run duplicate job.

That's what your idea should be about...
