I have set up three backup jobs with
Backup Exec 2010. It's a standard GFS, using a 24 slot Hp tape library. Right now we are just using 17 tapes. Slot 1-6 are daily, 7-10 are weekly and 11 and up are monthly.
In BE I've created three media sets:
- Daily: OPP 1 week, AP 1 week
- Weekly: OPP 5 weeks, AP 1 week
- Monthly: OPP Infinite, AP 1 week
This is the first backup to be made of the system. All tapes are currently associated with
scratch media. Is it possible to determine exactly what tape BE will pick for the first backup? I.e I want the first full backup to be taken from slot 11 and monday from slot 1, tuesday from slot 2 etc.
Or do I just wait and see what BE choses and then write down afterwards what tapes were picked for each run?
