I just finished installing Backup exec 11d, everything works nice, now I want to configure my backup plan.
we will backup to folders as tapes will come few months later, we will backup Exchange, AD and file server.
we want to do the following:
we want to do weekly full backups (Sat @ 1AM) and daily incremental backups (Sun-Fri @ 1AM) with a four week media rotation. So:
Week 1 - Media Set A
Week 2 - Media Set B
Week 3 - Media Set C
Week 4 - Media Set D
Week 5 - Media Set A

I created the media sets and set the overwrite protection period to 4 weeks and append period to 1 week first is that right.
next I want to create my backups, so how to do it, for example let us take exchange.
create 4 full backup jobs, configure each one to run in specific week according to the retention, and create 4 incremental backups wich runs daily (backup one runs in the first week from each month...etc).

if I am not correct can someone advice.
