Duplicate to tape

Hi,

We have a backup jobs that backup our Hyper-v servers to an SAN volume, Now I want to duplicate just two of the VMs that I see in the backup sets to a tape. When choose the option duplicate to tape does the backup set is going directly to a tape? if not where will be saved before is moved to the Tape?

Re: Duplicate to tape

Yes, the backup image will be duplicated from the primary disk storage to tape.

Ideally, you should configure the B2D2T directly in the policy if you want to automate the process.

It will duplicate the whole backup set to tape and you cannot select only two VMs.

You need to create a separate backup job.

When I open the backup set I can see All of the VMs and I can right click on one of them and chose duplicate to tape!! would it this duplicate only this VM!?
