B2D2T with Autoloader Tape

Hello Guys,

I want do backup job to disk and duplicate to tape :

- Backup Exec : 2014

- Disk Storage : Local Disk

- Tape Auto Loader  : IBM TS 2900

- Cartridge : 5

- Server : 2 File Server, 6 SQL Server

- Disk Backup
    * Full Backup    : Saturday
        = Overwrite   :: 2 Weeks
        = Append      : Allow Append (Because disk storage will automatically remove Expired Backup Set)

    * Incremental     : Moday - Friday
        = Overwrite   :: 1 Week
        = Append      : Allow Append (Because disk storage will automatically remove Expired Backup Set)

- Duplicate to Tape
    * Full Backup       : Immadiate After Full Backup Job is Finished
        = Overwrite      :: 3 Weeks
        = Append        :  5 Weeks

 

Now, I wanna ask some question about that :

1. Am I correct about Append Period in Backup to Disk?

2. Is there any configuration that i need to do before use the Autoloader (Outside Create Media Set and Associate Tape with Media Set)?

 

If you have some advise for me about this job or configuration, i'm really happy to hear.

 

Cheers

1. Disk-based backups used to always be overwrite, not append if I remember correctly from previous versions.

Thanks!
