Multiple media pools for backup

Hi there,

I'm trying to set a filesystem backup that uses 2 media pools, 1st for full backups (weekend) and 2nd for incremental backups (daily).

I've been looking around in the app and manual but I cannot find a way to do this.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks a lot!

Re: Multiple media pools for backup

Pool can be configured per backup specification (in devices tab, click on selected device and click "Properties" button, and there should be a "Media pool" drop-down). But this cannot be configured per scheduled instance, so you will have to create two backup specifications, one for full and one for incremental, and select a different media pool in each spec.

If that is too restrictive, contact support to issue an enhancement request.

"two backup specifications, one for full and one for incremental, and select a different media pool in each spec."

That is working as expected. At first, I thought that the spec with the full backup would have to be the same for creating the incrementals.

Thank you very much. Sorry for the long time.
