i have a couple quick questions about best practives for Backup exec 2010.
we have 2 backup server running BE2010, and BE2010R3. each server has its own robotic tape library. Dell TL4000(LTO4), and Dell 132T(LTO3).
now every week when my offsite tapes come back to me, what i normally do is put them back into their respective tape library's. then in BE, i run a "quick erase" job on the tapes, then re allocate them to the proper Media Set.. then run a scan and then inventory job on each tape drive.
question is, is this the best way? do i need to be doing all of this when i put tapes back into rotation?
when i have a lot of tapes to put back in, like this week, over 20 tapes.. the time spent erasing and re allocating tapes takes hours to do. what do you guys do with your tapes in BE?
