Execute Following Plan After Backup Completes - New Format
I believe the issue that kept us from using chained backups before was that either the subsequent plans would always run as full backups, or would never run as full backups (I can't remember which it was), no matter what the initial plan was scheduled to run. Has this been resolved?
Our goal is to run monthly incremental full backups on each of the plans in the chain. To accomplish this, would we only setup a schedule on the initial plan?
Also, we are not using GFS currently. If we were to use it in the future, should we just set each individual chained plan up with GFS identically? Or does setting GFS on the first plan establish it for the rest of the subsequent plans?
