BackupExec with a Travan Drive - Second Tape not loading
Posted on 2004-11-09
I have a client that just recently has needed two tapes to complete their daily backups. They have a Travan 20/40 Drive and we bought 20/40 Media inwhich they get 20.4GB's of data storage per tape (they have very large AutoCad & redering files)
I have set all Media in Media Set 1 to allow infinite Overwrites and the media is only protected for 1 Hour from being overwritten.
The problem I'm having is I can take any used or new tape and start the daily backup which fills the tape to 20.4 GB's in about 7.2 hours and then BackupExec ejects the tape and wants a next tape.
The problem is no matter what tape I put in the drive it keeps beeping and saying Loading.... and the run time just gets longer and longer but the byte size stays the same.
Any thoughts for me to check, to see why BackupExec is not accepting the next tape and continuing with the rest of the files and completing the backup job?
