DP 5.5 & Prealloc list for slot rotation dailay

Jump to solution
I need to assign a slot of may 1/8 Autoloader 448 for every day of the week (slot 1 for Monday ... slot 7 for Sunday). ¿Is it possible to do it by means of Prealloc List?

Thank you very much.

Albert,

Slots cannot be defined in a backup job, but you can achieve the desired goal as follows:

-create a media pool for each day of the week
-let all of these media pools use the same free pool
-define backup jobs for each day of the week. The monday job will use the media pool 'Monday' and so on.

Then the backup of each day will be on a seperate tape. This is what you are asking for although it is not required that the tape in slot 1 will be used for the monday backup, it could be in another slot too.

If you add the tape in slot 1 yourself in the media pool 'Monday', ... and the tape in slot 7 in the media pool 'Sunday' then you have what you are asking for.

I personally don't like a too strict backup scheme, it takes away too much flexibility.

best regards,
Kurt
