How to get multiple tape copies on an Aux to Tape?

How to get multiple tape copies on an Aux to Tape?


I want to be able to move decommissioned servers from it's usual SP to the Archive SP, run a single Full to Primary disk and then Aux to tape multiple times so that I end up with multiple copies of the same data on different tapes.

My Archive SP is setup (prim-to-disk and an Aux-to-tape) but can't see the "make another copy" button? If I use "re-copy" it deletes the current tape's data and writes again so I still end up with 1 tape.

What have I missed?



RE: How to get multiple tape copies on an Aux to Tape?

You actually have to configure multiple SP secondary copies to achieve that.
