Migrating File Collections to tape

Jill_Jones
Level 4
I am enabling the migration of File collections to tape, but need to understand this process better.

Does anyone know where I can find any documentation on this?

I need to know what activates the migration. Does it run when we run our backup process? Does it run at any time? The colections have been created for some time now.

Thanks for any info!!

have you looked at the NBU activity monitor?
Have you logged a case with support yet?

I logged a case with support. The NBU activity shows successful completion with no errors.
