We are currently running BackupExec 10d and have recently implemented a Dell Power Vault 132t Tape Library with 2 tape units. Currently backups are running over 4 LTO tapes. I have setup 2 separate jobs to utilise both units at the same time. Full backups are being run every night. To provide uniformity and the ability to restore any data for the period of 1 month, I was planning on creating media sets for each daily backup (ie..week1mon, Week1Tues, Week2Mon, Week2Tues ect..). This of course would mean that with 2 tape units and 23 media sets, I would have to setup 46 individual jobs for the daily backups alone. (To utilise 2 tape units and a different media set everyday)
The reason behind wanting to have set tapes on set days of the month was to simplify the process of the tapes being sent off site and the service provider easily knowing what tapes were to come and go each day.
Is this the correct way of setting this up, or is there a better process to achieve the same result?
