I have 10 tapes with IBM LTO 6 ULT3580 and EXEC backup 2012 (With VMware agent Lice) installed on Win 2008 R2. I’m planning to create Weekly & Monthly full backup and daily incremental. what i need to know are the follow:
1-The best practice to create media set for my backup. can i create one media set used for all tapes or should i divide to multiple media set.
2-What is the media pool? is it different from media set. should i use in my environment (sorry if the question wrong, I’m not expert in the backup domain).
3-In Storage>>Slots i can see all tapes with Label (barcode). should i change that label to something like (Sunday-backup) or it's better to keep the same?
4-I need to take backup for 7 virtual machines. can i take weekly full backup and daily incremental (does incremental backup works with VM)?
Thank you in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you very much for the quick response.
Concerning point 2, yes i have library with 2 tape drives (one installed and the other empty). so media pool can be used in case both drive are there and used. correct?
For point 3, if i right click on the media, i have "label" option and i can change the lable with warning that the media will be overwritten.
