Does scheduling INCR and FULL backups in separate specifications work?

Would the tracking of INCR and FULL work if you copy a backup spec and have the schedule be INCR on one and the other copy be just the FULL?

I ask because I'd like to limit my copy operations to just grab FULL copies going into my tape library and since there isn't an option in the copy operation to grab the latest FULL only, splitting the backup specs so that objects from one spec are Fulls only seems the way to go.

Thanks.

    In order to keep track of the incr/full chains, Data Protector uses three parameters to identify the objects:

    1. Client
    2. Mount Point
    3. Object Description

     

    So, as long as the backup jobs are an exact copy and  none of the above parameters changes, the Incrementals should be matched to the Fulls even if they were created by different backup specs.
