Adv. Scheduling w/ Backup Exec 12.5

Hello,

I am working with Backup Exec 12.5 and am trying to get the following rotation going:

Week 1 - Media 1: Monday -Full, T-Sun -Inc
Week 2 - Media 2: Monday -Full, T-Sun -Inc

Repeat Week 1, Week 2, Week 1, Week 2 etc

The fulls have been easy to schedule as two separate jobs that run every 14 days alternating.

The issue I am having is with scheduling the Incremental jobs in this fashion.  I could accomplish this by creating 12 incremental jobs that run every 14 days(alternating weeks) but this would create a total of 14 jobs, creating a lot of room for error.

For example:

Week 1/Media 1 Jobs  --- Run once every 14 days starting the 13th

Monday - Full
Tues-- Inc
Wed- Inc
Thu - Inc
etc....

Week 2/Media 2 Jobs  --- Run once every 14 days starting the 20th

Monday - Full
Tues- Inc
Wed- Inc
Thu - Inc
etc....

Does any know of a better way to do this using backup exec 12.5?  I feel like this should be able to be accomplished without having to create an individual job for each day of the week and that I might be missing something.

Any input at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Got it figured out on my own.  The only way to schedule this way is to use a job for each day of the week....14 day rotation...14 jobs.

Couldn't you have set your Week1 Media1 - Incre jobs on a schedule for Tue-Sun? With a separate job for Week1 Media1 - Full- Monday?  

Also are you using a robotic library where you dont have to manually insert the media?
