HI ARCserve Expertz

We have a library and with 2 different groups (Group A and Group B). At the moment we have 1 tape in Group A, and 2 tapes in Group B. At the moment we are changing these tapes on a daily basis, however would like to add more tapes and rotate, and change this on a weekly basis instead.

Question is, how do we configure to accept more tapes without overriding the existing tapes? Eg We have 3 tapes, and we would like to add an additional 3 tapes, once the 1st 3 tapes have been used, the following day would like to use the 2nd set of tapes without overriding the 1st set.

Can someone tell us how to configure this?

Cheers
Goraek

This needs to be done based on tape labels and your tape pools.

Create a rotation job which will create a rotation pool for your media, automatically.

I created a 5-day differential, with a full backup on Fridays GFS job.

Also in your global job option, make sure first backup media is set to overwrite same media name or blank media and then any media.  Do the same for Additional backup media.

Also, because you are creating two groups for tape media, as long as you do not place media into incorrect groups in your rotation, you should be fine.
