What I do is this. I have two pools, xes and xes_offsite. I also
have two groups, xes_full and xes_incr. I then schedule group
xes_full to do "full" on Sunday, skip every other day. I schedule
group xes_incr to do an "incremental" Mon-Sat and skip Sunday.
I also select the cloning option in the xes_full group and the
clones are written to the xes_offsite tape pool. If you wanted
(though I don't), each Monday you could mark yesterday's (Sunday's)
xes_offsite tape as full, take it out, and send it offsite.
That would give you fulls both on-site and off-site.
