To back up tenant data to tape, you must create and run tenant backup to tape jobs. Technically, a tenant backup to tape job is a variant of a backup to tape job targeted at a GFS media pool. For more information about GFS media pools, see the GFS Media Pools section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
As a source for a tenant backup to tape job, you can specify the following types of objects:
- All tenants
- One or more specific tenants
- One or more cloud repositories of the same tenant or different tenants
Backups created by tenant backup to tape jobs become available in the Backups > Tape node of the SP Veeam backup console. Such backups are not displayed in the tenant Veeam backup console.
Consider the following:
Limitations for Tenant Backup to Tape Jobs
The tenant backup to tape job does not process backups created with previous versions of Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Agents. To overcome this limitation, the tenant must upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication on the tenant backup server or Veeam Agent on their machines to the latest version. After upgrade, the tenant's jobs must run at least once.
