how to add new media to a new media set
Posted on 2007-10-11
I recently was assigned the wonderful duty of taking care of one of our subsidiaries environments. They use Backup Exec 10D. I'm used to using Arcserve. My problem is this; I have a current backup routine that starts a backup at 6 PM, using media set 1 on a single powervault 110 Tape drive. So it is basically evening backups to media set 1 this set has about 20 tapes in it. I've created a new media set named media set 2 (I know VERY creative) for a new and additional backup routine. This routine will backup a backup-to-disk to tape. This job will run every day at 9AM. I've ordered 20 new tapes in order to have a different tape for every day of the week. I've inserted the first tape and now I want to add it to the media set 2. How do I do this? I've looked at help in backup exec, and searched for importing tapes but not any of those are relevant or are vague at explaining this. Thanks in advance and of course please let me know if you have a need for any additional info.
