About the Vault process

Vaulting is the process of sending backup images off site to a protected storage location.

For more information about the specific steps in a Vault process, see the following:

A Vault job must select images (Choose Backups). The other steps are optional so you can separate the Vault tasks into separate jobs if desired, using different jobs to accomplish different tasks. For example, you can use one job to select and duplicate images daily, and another job to eject media and generate reports weekly.

Injecting returned media back into the robot is a manual operation. The Vault reports include the media that should be recalled from the off-site location and injected into the robot.

The term vault refers to a logical entity that is associated with a particular robot. It also refers to the off-site storage location of a set of tapes.
