I have found articles for older version of Backup Exec but none for 2010.
Can anyone point me in the direction to do this correctly? We want to backup to a NAS and backup the same data to tape. What is the best way to accomplish this?
Please and thank you!!
Generally the best way to do Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape is to use Policies. There is a default policy (Default Backup Sets 00001) under the Job Setup tab that will get you started on the right track. You'll likely want to make a copy of the default policy and then modify it to suit your needs.
More details on duplicate jobs can be found in the BackupExec 2010 Admin Guide, which can be found here: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH77887
Create a policy with a backup template and a duplicate template.
Backup template for backing up to NAS. Create a B2D folder on the share and specify it under devices in the backup template.
Duplicate template for duplicating the data which already backedup to NAS B2D. Schedule the job.
And create a rule as Duplicate all backup sets that were create by Backup template by using Duplicate template as scheduled.
Or else you can create a rule such that After Backup completes, start Duplicate to duplicate backup sets.
