Thread: Using only one tape for daily backups

    Default Using only one tape for daily backups

    hi,

    I'm quite new with amanda and I got some difficulties to set up the right amanda.conf file for the configuration I expect . I'm trying to set up a daily incremental backup in order to use always the same tape (400G). And I will set up another configuration file for weekly and monthly backups. So is it possible to do that? if yes how should I set up my configuration file for my daily backups?

    Thanks.

    regarding daily and weekly dumps.

    Amanda currently does not support appending to tape, and besides, eventually you'd get to the end of that 400G -- what then? You'd have to erase it all and start over. You will want to invest in one or two more tapes, at least. See also:
