Ok peeps, got yet another Veritas question.  On 9.1  Have a library.
The tapes I believe hold about 400GB.  We backup 300GB on a full back up.
On a differential backup we only get about 11GB.  The differentials are backing up to the same tape everynight.
I want a 2 week rotation out of the 16 tapes, not a month.  So here it is.  Can I config
the tapes/backup/whatever the hell to backup only once to a tape.

Thank yas!

Yes, you can change out tapes on incrimental backups, but you had better label them because restoring can be a nightmare if you do not know specifically which tape is which and when it was written to.
