Running two jobs one after the other

HI there

I'm trying to figure out how with BE12.5 i can run one job and then get the other to kick off as soon as the first job is done.

Basically I'm doing a Backup at night but then from that Backup I want to to a Restore to somewhere else.

So as soon as the backup has completed I'd like the restore to start

Any suggestions?

You can enter them as two separate jobs. The backup first, then the restore a few minutes later. Of course, the restore will be queued up and waiting until the backup is finished, since (I assume) you only have a single tape, not a library. Once the backup completes, the restore will begin.

Yeah thats how i thought to do it but that then means relying on the other job to finish in a set time and telling the second one to wait and not time out

True ... although I use an older version of Backup Exec, and it does not time out.

I've also had another thought to this.....How do i do the restore when each night the tape that is backing up will be different.

So example....Monday, Tuesday,weds,Thu and Fri are the tapes backing up but each day i also want to restore from these tapes...Do i have to set up invidual Restores or is there a way I can just set on job?

The data on the back up is the same each night and thus technically the restore would be..if that makes sense

Again, I am referring to the older version of Backup Exec, but I think you will have to create a different restore job for each day of the week.
How about  a different solution: do the backup job in Backup Exec, and at the same time run a robocopy job that copies the data to wherever you were going to restore to? You will end up with the same result: data on the tape and the same data in your restore location.

Yeah its ok i thought about the robocopy also..... Plus i ve worked around hte needing different jobs as that was me complicating matters...I'm going with the First solution you mentioned as thats what i was planning and just wanted to see if ohters had any better ideas....I can set the start time till a couple of hours later and set the timeout period to a silly time :-)

Cheers for the advice.
