Hi,

Just off the top of my head....do you have the backup job pointed to the correct media pool?

Also, are there tapes allocated to that pool?

Hello Experts thanks for all the help. I open the server disconnected the tape drive and reconnected it the back, backup exec is now working fine. Don't know what was going wrong. I didn't do any changes to the hardware or software before this issue started.
