is there a way to schedule a duplicate to tape job for data set's?
i have scenario and i want it to be as automatic as possible.
i have 1 CAS and 2 MBS , MBS1 runs the backup job and store backups in Local deduplication folder then duplicate them to tape in next stage opt-duplicate them to MBS2 (another site) , i want to add an stage to duplicate backups from MBS2 to attached tape library who attached to it.
how can i do this? when adding another stage backup exec says cant access device (tape library who attached to MBS2) and i know thats because MBS1 is running backup , duplicate and opt-duplicate jobs not MBS2.
is there any way to add last stage to my backup policy? (Script , Device sharing or ...)
You won't be able to access a direct-attached tape library on 1 server from another, even with CASO invoked.
You need to do the following:
1. On MBS1 - backup to the dedupe folder
2. Create a stage to duplicate from the dedupe folder on MBS1 to the B2D (or dedupe folder) on MBS2. If you are duplicating to a B2D then the data will be rehydrated.
3. Create a stage to duplicate to tape on MBS2. If you are duplicating from a dedupe folder it will rehydrate the data to tape so expect a longer process.
