  1. How to sched job to eject media only on certain days with BE 8.5?


    I use BE 8.5 with a SDLT drive.
    I currenty use daily tapes for Mon-Thur, week-ending tapes on Fri and so
    on.
    Currently they eject each night when done.
    I would like to start doing daily backups on weekends when nobody is in the
    office. How do I setup a job that does backups on Fri-Sun and then ejects
    when done with the third day?

    On a side note how can you duplicate a Job Definition? I would like to maybe
    create a seperate job for those days but don't want to have to recreate the
    job definition again.

    Hi Alan

    Well you have some questions that are answered with 9.0 but in 8.x these
    options were not available. The Replication of jobs can only be answered
    with Raid Director or Backup Exec 9. But on the other hand the eject job
    you set up a job for Friday and Saturday that do not eject media on
    completion. And a seperate job on Sun that eject media.

    Hope this helps
    Juana
