Backup Exec 9 fails to complete backup
Posted on 2003-10-30
I am having problems with Veritas backup exec 9 on a Windows 2003 server. I am backing up about 14GB worth of data on 40/80GB tapes with a DLT DLT4000 20/40GB drive and it stops towards the end of the job asking for overwriteable media.
I noticed one of the tapes only shows 17.1 GB of total capacity and the others show 19.1. They are identical tapes, so this is a little confusing to me. I am new to backup exec, so if anyone knows what the problem is or a good white paper on the correct way to create the backup jobs.
I have disabled overwritable media, but it still promts for overwritable media and fails at the end. I am begining to suspect the drive because I have tried different tapes, with the same results.
I need an immediate resolution for this problem, so if you have any ideas I appreciate your help!
