Unable to perform backup on Backup Assist (Win SBS 2003)
Posted on 2006-07-13
Operating System: SBS Server2003
Software: Backup Assist
I am having a problem performing a backup through backup assist with the error "The requested media failed to mount. The operation was aborted. The operation was ended"
I have since rebooted the server to no avail. When navigating to Server Management - Advanced Management - Computer Management (Local) - Storage - Libraries - and to the backup device, I am getting an error
"Unable to read or write to the database. There is a problem with the Removable Storage Device. Please restart the service."
"The object identifier does not represent a valid object. This snapin's display may be inconsistant with the Removable Storage Service. If the problem persists please restart the snapin"
I have restarted the removable Storage Service and Snapshot service to no avail. It does seem like the problem is not related to Backup Assist but a problem with the operating system unable to communicate with the tape drive.
Thanks in advance
