Apologies if this is a no-brainer, this is data I can't play around with!
I have 7 different SAP servers that I backup and each goes to its own tape every night in its own full backup. We're about ready to add more servers and I can't keep allocating one server to its own tape. Some of these servers have as little as 30GB on them. I want to start using appends. Naturally, one of the backups will reach the end of the tape and start in on a new one. Is there any problem with this?
If there isn't, it seems that it would be an excellent time to use a policy to have one backup after another after another, etc.
