Linking Backup Jobs to Backup to Tape Jobs

Veeam Backup & Replication provides two options for linking backup jobs to backup to tape jobs:

  • If you already have backup jobs configured, you can choose the necessary jobs in the Backup to Tape Job Wizard. For details, see Creating Backup to Tape Jobs.
  • Alternatively, you can point a backup job to an existing backup to tape job using the Backup Job wizard.

To point a backup job to an existing backup to tape job, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the backup job settings and navigate to the Storage step. Select the Configure secondary destination for this job check box.
