Hi Suleman,

 

Could Command Center create above all? I did not found the Primary_Full storage policy enable select Primary_Inc Incremental storage policy in Command Center.

 

Best regards

Hi @Chinchilla ,

 

Everything would be selective  copy except for requirement 1 and 2

 

For requirement 3. we do not have selective copy to copy only Incremental job. Selective copy copies only full/synthetic full jobs, therefore you must be create a synchronous copy or selective copy to copy only fulls.

 

Requirement 3: second disk daily Inc auxiliary copy of daily tape media keep 28 days

 

Rest everything looks good.

 

Regards,

Suleman
