    Ok I've covered this multiple times, but the best method for a node needing to do dailies and monthlies is to create a second node_name called <node_name>-monthly and assign it to a "MONTHLY" policy. Also DO NOT DO FULLS!. Collocate the monthlies and make sure you just do incrementals. Makes no sense to backup data that hasn't changed. I did this process at a previous employer and it works great.
