I have a Dell Poweredge 2800 server running Windows 2003 server, an external HP storageworks Ultrium 460 tape drive connected via an Adaptec 29160 SCSI card. I am using Veritas Backup Exec for windows servers version 9.1 rev 4691 and everything looked fine.
BE runs on schedule and the backups complete successfully. I checked on yesterday and cd not find any data on the tape. I checked a few more and realised that al the tapes used over the last 3 weeks since the installation are blank. The BE logs show successful backup and verification, the BE database assumes successful completion, except when it comes to restore the data - it asks for the right tape but ther files do not exists.
I obviously need to solve this before it becomes and issue - any ideas?
