BackupEXEC 12 Media Sets

Posted on 2012-08-28

Fiddling with BackupEXEC 12.5 right now as we're currently using BackupEXEC 10 and want to upgrade.  Question about media sets.

In previous BackupEXEC versions you could assign media to a media set to define the overwrite/append protection period.  In BU12 I can configure media sets but there doesn't appear to be a clear way of assigning media to the media set.  

I created a B2D and now don't see a way of associating that with any media set...scratch media or one that I created to test.

Want to move media to media set
Any idea how I do this?

    I don't see anywhere that I can assign media to a backup media set.  I ran a test backup and it isn't assigning it to any media set.  I checked the job properties and there isn't anything in there to say which media set to use or associate too.  

    So trying to change the retention period and the append period is the main issue I'm trying to address.

    The screen shot is for BE2012 rather than 12.5
    Have a look at I think the procedure under section "3. Edit the job settings:" will make you find what you're looking for.
