Backup Exec 12.5 - Exchange 2003 - Backup Schedule Recommendation / Guide
Posted on 2010-09-22
Hi Fellow Experts,
OK, quick rundown:
Using BES 12.5 for Exchange 2003 (GRT and Backup 2 Disks) on Server 03 OS.
I'm going to do Backup 2 Disk Full on Fridays with a Duplicate to Tape afterwards
With Backup 2 Disk Incrementals for Monday - Thursday
My question is:
I want it to run on a 4/5 week basis with a condition that if its the last friday of the month, do the duplicate to Scratch Tape (which i guess will happen automatically by not putting the usual scheduled tape in on that day)
How do i go about setting this up? I know i have to use a policy, do i create:
A Full Backup Job
And a Incremental Backup Job
Assign both seperate jobs to a Policy with a duplicate condition after Full backup in it?
As for the schedule itself... I'm not entirely sure so thought i'd throw it out. :-)
Nice 1 guys
