Hey folks .
I am using backupexec 2010.
I am backing up data from multiple servers to daily weekly and montthly B2D folders with
30 days retention for daily
4 weeks for weekly
1 year for monthly
Now i want to back the B2D folder to tape.
I got a 48 library slots with tapes.
I see the library in backupexec.
I will be sending tapes offsite.
If you could tell me step by step how to do this..My only concern is that i want to be sure im sending tapes offsite with all the backups and be able to restore 100% in case of disaster recovery.
Under Devices here is how it sees the library tape
I was thinking of creating a device pool with the 2 librarys ( hp0001 & hp0002 ) and then create a new backup job or new duplicate backup jobs sets( but i think this one i need to catalog the B2D folders )
Not sure of this setup because im afraid it will spread the data all over the library and not just one tape so i can send it offsite.
Anyways , i am not an expert and need some help on this for best pratice :)
I will really apreciate any step by step help please.
