How to configure TL 4000 and BE 12.0 for backup jobs
Posted on 2008-11-07
I have recently installed the Dell Powervault TL 4000 (Random mode) and the BE 12.0, I have assigned an IP address to the TL 4000 i can access it through web. I want to do simple back up job configuration like, every day (except Fridays) i want to take daily (Differential) backup, and every Friday i want to make weekly Full back up of my data, plus the last Friday (full back up) will be my monthly back up.
I have done this before with Dell Powervault LTO-4 tape drive, but now with the library....i have recieved some tapes with bar codes with the TL 4000, i am not sure how to arrange the tapes in the library and how to schedule the jobs in the BE, i want the BE manage the tapes. do i need to make media sets? and how will i know which tape will be my differential back up and which full, which monthly?
