  • Help Please? Backup Exec 10d SP4 Schedule

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you would be able to point out what i have done wrong! i am attempting to implement the following schedule.

    1st of the month a Full backup gets done

    every sunday a Full backup gets done <-- except 1st of the month

    monday through saturday a incremental backup

    so, a daily backup looks for the latest weekly, if not found, then it looks for the monthly, if not found then a full backup is done.

    i want to be able to remove the monthly\weekly tape on monday mornings

    here is how i setup my schedule up, but three backups run daily. daily, weekly, monthly. and the full and incremental are mixed.

    any help is absolutely greatly appriciated.

    For some odd reason, the schedule I have in place continues to run all my jobs daily (Daily, Weekly, and Monthly):

    Policy Properties:

    A. Jobs:

    1. Daily Backup - Run according to schedule - Backup - Incremental - Certance 1 - Daily.Media.Set

    2. Weekly Backup - Run according to schedule - Backup - Full - Certance 1 - Weekly.Media.Set

    3. Monthly Backup - Run according to schedule - Backup - Full - Certance 1 - Monthly.Media.Set

    B. Template:

    1. If start time conflicts, Monthly Backup supersedes Daily Backup.

    2. If start time conflicts, Monthly Backup supersedes Weekly Backup.

    3. If start time conflicts, Weekly Backup supersedes Daily Backup.

    C. Schedule:

    Daily: Mon - Tues - Wed - Thu - Fri - Sat = All (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, Last)

    Start: 9.00pm

    Weekly: Sun = 2nd, 3rd, 4th && Specific Dates (02.29 - 05.30 - 08.29 - 10.30)

    Start: 6.00pm

    Monthly: Specific Dates = 1st of each month

    Start: 6.00pm

    D. Media Sets:

    1. Daily.Media.Set = overwrite after 18 days append ok (I can use the tape again on every 4th Monday)

    2. Weekly.Media.Set = overwrite after 18 days append ok

    3. Monthly.Media.Set = overwrite after 89 days append ok

    So why do I get 3 scheduled jobs every day?

    Daily runs = seems like a full

    Weekly runs = seems like incremental

    Monthly runs = seems like incremental

    The only thing I have yet to do is partition my tape drive magazine which holds 8 cartridges. What gives, any help is greatly appreciated. Oh and after attempting to figure out the best to create a job using wizards, I ended up using the starting point of the policy wizard which walked me thought whole thing.

    Thx.
Working...
