missing a scheduled task

Recommended Posts

I had a question about scheduling. In my office, we set up a backup strategy for 3 backup sets, rotating them weekly. Monday is a recycle and tuesday through sunday are normal backups to the same set.


My question is, what happens if nobody is in the office on monday to change the tape? Will retrospect just sit there until someone puts in the next backup set's tape?


And what will happen to scheduled events that are missed (say, nobody is there to change the tape on monday, and the recycle backup for the next set doesn't happen)? is there some way to have the recycle backup happen whenever someone next changes the tape?


I would guess that if it misses the recycle backup for the week, it will continue the incremental backup using the scheduled normal backups when the correct tape is inserted?
