About media rotation in the SAN Shared Storage Option

Media rotation jobs are treated the same as backup jobs. You can schedule a media rotation job to run on any device you have access to, such as a local device or a shared storage device. You cannot schedule a media rotation job to run on a device you do not have access to, such as a tape drive attached to the local SCSI bus of another server.

If a media rotation job is scheduled to begin, but all available devices are in use, the job will be placed into the queue.

To successfully use the Media Set Wizard in a shared storage environment, you must use one of the following strategies:

  • Restrict use of the Media Set Wizard to a single media server.

  • Use the same Overwrite Protection Periods and the same full backup day whenever you use the Media Set Wizard on all media servers in the shared storage environment.

  • Edit the jobs and rename the media sets created by each Media Set Wizard used so the jobs and media sets are server-centric.
