I got an error when trying to do NT backup by selecting tape drive. The error is :
<required media missing>:- "There is no unused media available with the selected type. Add unused media or click cancel to select another type. Note: It may take up to 60 seconds for removable storage to recognize new media".
This problem has been raised before but the fix did not work for me.
I solved the problem by using BLUE tape instead of BLACK ones.
Black ones are all labelled ultrium 1 100G
Blue ones are hp 200G Ultrium 1 C7971A.
One server is using Ultrium 1 intrenal scsi drive and the other is using external ultrium 2
Both have exactly the same driver installed.
Does anyone know what the 'rules' are for using tapes like this between these drives.
It looks as if the ultrium 2 will read the 100G tapes but not write / recognise them for back up and that the ultrium 1
will use either ? is this true?
