We have a Dell Powervault 114 t (LTO Ultrium 3 tape) which performs our nightly backup.
Since last Friday however, the backups have failed since Symantec backup exec says that the job is "Ready; no idle devices are available"
Yesterday, I rebooted both the server (that has the backup exec software installed) and the Dell Powervault.
Still the same thing.
Today, I have disabled and deleted the Dell device on the Devices - tab in Backup exec.
What now ?
I can't add the Dell device any longer in Backup exec, it's not showing up ...
