I am looking at switching our backup to go to disk every evening, and then once a month (last day of the month), roll those off to tape.
I'm confused on how I can schedule this to be done. I have created my incremental backup job that is being used on our backup tape library.
Can I just apply a new policy to that existing job? Or do I have to create a new job based on the policy? If I have to create the job based on the policy, it appears that BE2010 then creates about 4 new jobs in my job setup list?
Is that the correct way to do this? Or are there instructions somewhere that will walk me through how to do this???
If standalone, set up a daily backup to disk job & create another job, i.e. duplicate job & schedule it to tape every month..same applies to policy as well...set up a duplicate job template
Either ways...you can either create one daily backup job & a separate duplicate backup job OR else, you can setup a policy with 2 templates...first template for the daily backup & the second template for the monthly duplicate
I have a ploicy set to daily backup and duplicate to tape, then monthly backup and dup to tape.
See attachment to get an idea.
As I use a tape library and use a tape delivery service to a hosted site , I also use teh export media commands to get the tape into the right media vault
