Duplicate job settings for DBA-initiated jobs
You can configure duplicate job template settings for DBA-initiated jobs.
Table: Duplicate job settings for DBA-initiated jobs
Enables the settings for a duplicate backup set template.
Specifies the storage device to which you want to send backup data for the duplicate DBA-initiated job.
Designates the amount of time for which you want to keep the backup sets or job history from the duplicate DBA-initiated job.
Indicates the media set to use for the duplicate DBA-initiated job. The media set specifies the overwrite protection period and the append period for the backup data on the media.
If you want to create a new media set for this backup job, click the icon to the right of the media set drop-down menu.
See Default media sets.
Indicates that the backup job is placed on an overwritable media. Ensure that appropriate media is in the storage device that you select.
Appropriate media for an overwrite job include the following:
Depending on your configuration, overwritable media is selected from scratch media or recyclable media.
If the media in the storage device is not overwritable, an alert prompts you to insert overwritable media.
See Managing tapes.
Appends this backup job to the specified media set if an appendable media is available. Otherwise, Backup Exec searches for an overwritable media and adds it to the media set.
If an append job fills a media, the backup job continues on an overwritable media. If the media in the storage device is not overwritable, an alert appears to prompt you to insert overwritable media.
Appends this backup job to the specified media set if an appendable media is available. Otherwise, Backup Exec terminates the job.
Ejects the media from the drive or slot when the operation completes. You can also schedule a job to eject media.
Runs the tape in the drive from beginning to end at a fast speed. Retensioning helps the tape wind evenly and run more smoothly past the tape drive heads. This option is available only if you select a tape drive that supports retensioning.
Specifies the use of WORM (write once, read many) media as the default for DBA-initiated jobs. Backup Exec confirms that the destination device is or contains a WORM-compatible drive, and that the WORM media is available in the drive. If WORM media or a WORM-compatible drive is not found, an alert is sent.
Enables Backup Exec to coordinate the movement of data from virtual storage directly to a physical storage device.
The Backup Exec server records information about the data in the catalog. Therefore, you can restore data from either the virtual storage or the physical storage.
Provides the following compression options:
Specifies the encryption key that you want to use, if any.
Specifies the encryption key that you want to use, if you selected to use encryption.
Lets you manage your encryption keys.
You can delete or replace existing encryption keys. You can also create a new encryption key.
This option is available only if you select an encryption type.
Specifies the preferred source device that you want to use as the storage for the duplicate job.
Performs a verify operation automatically to make sure that the data can be read after the backup has been completed. Verifying all backups is recommended.
