can specific tapes be assigned to specific backup sets?


Recommended Posts

Using Retrospect 6 workgoup on a dual 2GHz Xserve running 10.3.5 Server using a 16 tape Sony auto changer (AIT-3).

 

Is it possible in Retrospect to have specific tapes be assigned to specific backup sets?

 

I would like to have a 'pool' of tapes dedicated to a backup set and a separate 'pool' of archive tapes dedicated to archives. The archive will be sent offsite.

 

Can these 'pools' co-exist in one tape library?

Hi

 

After a backup/archive the tapes will belong to different sets so you will get something close to what you are after in the end.

 

You won't be able to pre-name the tapes but all the tapes can exist in the same loader with no trouble.

 

Thanks

Nate,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

So, if I have a backup group and I need to span to a new tape, will Retrospect write to the next available tape? Or should I just wait until Retro asks for a new tape and put in the tape that I want it to write, too?

 

Thanks, again.
