View Full Version : How to get a complete backup on one tape?

November 24th, 2010, 12:40 PM

i would like amanda to backup all DLEs of a certain job to one tape, but each time this job is run i get the following error after 1 DLE has been backed up:

[1 tapes filled; runtapes=1 does not allow additional tapes]

So it seems like amanda wants to use a new tape for each DLE.
As these tapes are 1.5TB of size, i would like to have all DLEs backed up to the same tape.

This job is run once a week with the following settings:

dumpcycle 7
runspercycle 1
tapecycle 3
runtapes 1

I configured a Tape Library with 3 slots for this job and labeled 3 vtapes (these are USB Disks, always one of them is attached to the backup server and the other two are off-site).

Is there any option getting amanda to backup all DLEs on the same trape?

Many thanks in advance.
