Step 6. Add Optional Media Pool Settings

At the Options step of the wizard, you can enable parallel processing and encryption.

  1. Select the Enable parallel processing for tape jobs using this media pool check box if you want to process multiple tape jobs simultaneously. Set the maximum number of drives that the media pool can use in parallel.

If you want to use multiple drives simultaneously to process multiple source backup chains within the tape jobs, select the Enable parallel processing of backup chains within a single job check box. For more information, see Tape Parallel Processing.

  1. To enable encryption, select the Use encryption check box. This option allows you to encrypt the content of files or backups archived to tapes in the media pool.

From the Password field, select a password you want to use to encrypt data written to tape. You can also click Add or use the Manage passwords link to add a password. For more information, see Tape Encryption.

If the source job produces encrypted backups, and you enable encryption in the properties of the media pool, the data on tape will be encrypted twice. To decrypt such tape backups, you will need to specify two passwords:

  • Password for the GFS media pool.
  • Password for the source backup job.
