Backup Exec single job vs. multiple jobs
Posted on 2006-06-27
I'm reworking some backup jobs and I've got 4 servers that need to run a differential backup Mon-Thurs, and a full backup on Friday. My question is whether there is an advantage or disadvantage to creating a single job vs. multiple jobs(1 for each server). The servers are all Windows 2003(Exchange, File, Web, and Utility) and we use Backup Exec 10d. The tape library is an Adic Fastor 2 using SDLT 320 tapes. I think it would be easier to switch from the existing setup(1 job per server for both the full and differential) to a single job with selections from all servers. Before I do that, I'd like to get some feedback. Thanks!
