ARCServe backup strange next tape request
Posted on 2006-07-18
I am having problems with my ARCServe setup. I used to have a problem where the DHCP JET writer, BITS writer and MSDE writer didn't work, upon reinstall these appear to be backing up but now, after the backup has been running for about 4 and a half hours it crashes asking for "Next media MEDIANAME sequence #2". We are using 72GB tapes and I don't think it's anywhere near the size limit, but I have reduced the number of directories it backs up to a point where that couldn't possibly be it and yet it still falls over in the way described. An excerpt from the log is below. Any suggestions very welcome.
