Backup Exec tape management question - different tapes for different days? (TapeVault PV-132T)
I've been asked to make sure that we don't use the same tape two consecutive days in a row. I don't know the best way to go about this. I haven't previously setup anything using policies so maybe this is the time to start.
One round of backups will generally cross days so it seems it would have to be something not based on date.
Server 1 - 9:00 PM
Server 2 - 11:00 PM
Server 3 - 1:00 AM
I know one solution would be simply removing the tapes in the morning but I may not always be here. Another solution may be creating separate media sets per day but that seems cumbersome.
I'm looking for someone who has done something similar before to share with me what they've done.
