  • Hi,

    So you are wanting to perform Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape backups.  This should be an easy configuiration. Assuming all 4 VM's fit on a single tape, with 10 tapes in rotation, you can easily setup the daily long term tape backup with a 7 day retention.

    What kind of problem are you running into ?
