Thread: How to get a complete backup on one tape?

    Default How to get a complete backup on one tape?


    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.
