I am overhauling our backup at the main location and need your help.
We have a HP D2D2504i appliance and Backup Exec 2010 connected via iSCSI.
The full backup(NON-deduplicated) is around 1.5 TB.
I would like to make a full system backup on Sunday and incremental backups Monday-Saturday.
Here is what I have done so far:
1) Created one 1x8 G2 Autoloader LTO4 device with 8 cartridges.
2) Backup Exec sees it as a single device HP3
We will be running one job at a time. One backup job a day.
Am I better off by creating two separate VTLs in D2D2504 and backing up incrementals to one device and weekly jobs to the other?
I don't see tapes for the new d@d device in Backup Exec. Am I supposed to run some wizard to get them into the system?
I would appreciate any advice on how to efficiently use this HP D2D2504 device with Backup Exec.
