Backup Exec 12.5 how to force specific tapes to be used on certain days
Posted on 2010-09-08
Currently running backup exec 12.5.
our current backups use 6 tapes a night.
our autoloader holds 30 tapes.
but each night we import and export tapes based on that day.
We have the month broken down into 4 weeks week 1-4
we use the same tapes for each day of that week every month.
for example for monday week 1 we use tapes A,b,c,d,e,f,g for week 2 we use h,i,j,k,l
then the next month on the 1st monday of the first week we put back in tapes a,b,c,d,e,f,g
to be used again.
what i would like to do is be able to load all 30 tapes into the library, and have backup exec
use the same tapes every month for the specified day ie: week 1 monday.
is there a way to do this?
