Excellent Backup ProcedureLocked
Here is the current procedure:
1) At approx 8:00 PM every night ArcServer starts backuping up the NT server to a DLT and finishes about 12 hours later when I come into work around 7:30 AM.
2) When I come in around 7:30 AM I wait to make sure everything is completed and then I switch the tape and put the next days in
3) I had the tape to the bank runner to deposit the tape in the safety deposit box and she grabs the old tape from the day before
this procedure is the same for Monday – Friday and on the weekends:
Saturday I come in and switch the tapes and take the old tape home, and I do the same on sunday.
What I am wanting to know is:
1) a procedure that I could implement so I DON”T have to come in on the weekends. Not backing up the system on the weekends won’t work because we perform some business on the weekends. Or skipping a day and just doing the backup on a sunday night would work too. Mainly I’m looking for a fool proof way so I never have to comein on the weekends t
