I also posted this over on Spiceworks, but figured I'd post it here too in hopes of expediting a solution. I just upgraded from 2010 to 2014 SP1, and while everything appears to be OK for the most part, I did run into a situation with my Synthetic backups.
In 2010 I had a policy template set up to run an Incremental daily, then a synthetic weekly and a synthetic monthly. The monthly synthetic superseded the weekly synthetic, and then I had duplication to tape jobs set to trigger upon completion of the weekly/monthly synthetic. The duplication job used a different media set depending on whether a weekly or monthly synthetic had been run.
After upgrading to BE 2014, all the synthetic jobs appeared to come through (the weekly and the monthly), but when I edit the backup definition only the weekly synthetic and weekly duplication jobs are not shown. I kind of get the impression that what I'm did (or at least the way I did it) are not supported in 2014? I'm looking for some insight on how I can duplicate my synthetic jobs to a weekly media set the first 3-4 weeks of each month, and then have them duplicate to a monthly media set the last week of each month. If duplication jobs could supersede each other it would be easy, but apparently they cannot.
Here's what I see in BE 2014:
What am I missing? Thanks in advance.
