Getting Started with Tapes

After you have connected tape devices, you need to complete the following steps:

  1. Add a tape server to the Veeam backup server.
  2. Load tapes to the tape device (if not yet loaded) and run the importing procedure for them.
  3. Create one or more media pool or GFS media pool that will be used as targets for tape jobs.
  4. Configure one or more media vaults to conveniently organize offline tapes.
  5. Configure and run backup to tape or file to tape jobs.
  6. Restore virtual machines to infrastructure or both virtual and physical machines to repository, or restore files from tape.
