How to set device priority in backup exec 11d?
Posted on 2010-09-19
I am running back up exec 11d in windows server 2003 R2 with 8 jobs, 4 incremental and 4 Full jobs. I used back up to disk folder but I am now also using Dell Tape Library TL2000. I want to backup to tape but I still want to leave the backup to disk just in case if tape does not work, back up to disk can take over.
The problem I am having right now is, all the back up jobs are backing up to disk and not to the tape. It was backing up to the tape fine before I recently created 2 new jobs. How can I set the priority to tape first and then to b2d? It backs up to tape only when I change the target device to tape but if I leave it to "All Devices" it backs up to b2d.
Even after I change the priority to devices listed in my device pools i.e. 1 to IBM1 (tape) and 10 to Back-up-to Disk, it gets defaulted back to priority 10.
Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
