implement backup strategy with backup exec 2010 and the tapes
Posted on 2010-08-26
I'm new with backup exec and tapes, so i'm getting confused on how to implement my backup strategy on Symantec backup exec 2010,
We have 4 servers (SQL, SharePoint, AD, fileserver) and we have backup server running backup exec attached with autoloader HP 1/8 LTO3,
My backup policy is simple, daily incremental for all the servers and weekly full for the same.
what i want to achieve here, is not to over wright my weekly backup tape and just replace them as soon it get full.
And for the incremental backup, to keep it for 1 month and then overwrite it.
first, what would be the best setup for the append and overwrite protection for the weekly tapes and incremental tapes.
second, what is the procedure here to replace the weekly backup after it get full?
I read through Symantec articles for append and over write protection but still confused about the best procedure should i pick here.
It would great help if someone can suggest the best scenario here.
