Can anyone shine some light in regards to why we're getting this error message for our daily rotational backup.  We're getting this on our Dell Power Vault backup system.

Thanks in advance

there are 3 types of jobs:
custom - most flexibility but nothing is preconfigued
rotation - preconfigured standard rotation, used 1 media pool, tapes reused every week
GFS - rotation but with 3 media pools for daily, weekly, and monthly backups

Media Pools have two sets, the Save and Scratch set.
The backup will use tapes that are in the Scratch set or unformated tapes.
After the backup the tape goes to the Save set.
Tapes stay in the save set until the configured # of tapes and days are met.

Example it is configured for 3 days and 2 tapes. Once a third tape in moved into the Save set and one of the tapes has been there for at least 3 days then it will be moved to the Scratch set.

The above message is indicating the job needs a tape from the Scratch set and the tape/s in the group are not part of that Scratch set.

I had to erase the labels on tape and move it back to the correct media pool.  Thanks for your help.
