Grouping Multiple Media for 1 Job



One of our weekly full backup job needed 2 tapes to completely backup . Therefore changing to second tape is done manually when the first tape is full.Is there anyway which i can set 2 media for 1 job?

E.g. If the Tape is full on slot 1 it will auto load the second tape in slot 2 to continue the job.

Re: Grouping Multiple Media for 1 Job

You can partition the loader with multiple slots in a partiion and point the job at the appropriate partition


You cannot, however, define a partition as overflow, so that any partition that fills up can grab a tape there.  You must explicitly add slots to a partition.  that is if the job will ever span two tapes, the partition it is pointed to must contain two slots
