    Using BEXNT/2000 on W2K SP3

    I'm wondering if it's possible to schedule one job to run after another job
    completes. I want to set one job for overwrite and the second to append with
    the first being a FULL and second INCREM. I don't see this option but I
    could be missing it.

    Please help!

    Couple of ways you can do this.

    1) Create the jobs. Define the first as Overwrite and all the others as
    Append. Make sure that they all point to the same tape device (if you have
    more than one)Schedule the 2nd, 3rd, ... at 10 minute intervals

    2) Create the jobs as above, use the BEMCMD utility as a POST-JOB to release
    the next job in line, use anothe rPOST-JOB to release the 3rd , etc.

    Or if this will be multiple days to the same tape, just create the jobs as
    above and schedule the full/overwrite for the first day (FRIDAY, perhaps)
    and the overwrite/Incr. for Monday-Thurs.
