automatic media selection question

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm trying to set up a backup job that automatically runs to whichever external hard drive in a cycle of five is plugged in. Each backup should be a full (recycled) backup. Is there a way to do this?


The problem I am solving is offsite disaster recovery. I do not want or need a historical archive as that is taken care of seperately. The idea is to allow any one of a set of drives to be plugged in and used for a backup automatically in case the "correct" drive in the cycle is not available. Each of the drives will be off-site about 50% of the time so I cannot guarantee that the "Monday" drive will be there on every Monday so I need retrospect to use whichever drive is available.





Edit: Pretty sure this would be the equivalent of disk pools in symantec backup exec. if that helps.
