Configure two tape under one lable for large backup.

Hi all,

Generally, my DB size was less than 6 TB. But this week it extended more than 6TB, is it possible to take that backup in one LTO7 tape drive (Size 6TB)? Or do I have to use two tape drives?

How can I use two tape drives for one backup? Need some suggestions.

I suppose that you use a 'new' tape for each backup. NW will actually backup until the tape is full and then request a new tape to continue. Of course you should consider to have a tape library installed which changes the media automatically..

Of course you can also use 2 tape drives and split the save set to run simultaneously.
