We are using version 8 currently. I have been instructed to make multiple copies of our Year End backup tapes. This straightforward request is complicated by a few things. We are running disk to disk to tape, however, since we don't have enough drive space, we are only using the secondary disk copy as a spooling area. Once the auxiliary copy is written to tape it gets cleared out.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about achieving this. If I have to simply copy the tapes afterward, I can do that. However, since we only have one tape drive it'll be pretty time consuming I'm guessing. I've toyed with adding another auxiliary copy, but am wondering how to keep the tapes completely segregated so that both copies don't write to the same tapes.
I'd appreciate any suggestion that you can give me.
