I am running Arcserve r11.1 on a autoloader with 8 tapes.  the backups run fine but now it is starting to go to two tapes.  i format the tapes with an internal name ex. data1, data2, etc. the first tape is fine but when it goes to the second tape it renames it to the same name as the first tape so i end up having two tapes that have an internal label of data1.  does anyone know how to stop this?  any help is greatly appreciated.

Can't stop it, just accept that ARCserve works that way.

The two tapes have the same name and ID, and will have different serial #s (if serial #s are used) and the first tape is sequence #1 and the second is sequence #2. Having both the same name and ID is the way they are identified as being part of the same backup set.

When viewing them from Media Pools only the seq. # 1 tape shows up since all the tapes in a set move as a unit. When viewed from the Database both tapes show up.

When restoring data from a session that starts on the seq. # 2 tape can be restored without the seq. # 1 tape, and any data in a session that started on the seq. # 1 tape can only be restored if the seq. # 1 tape is read first.

Thanks for the points. I'm a long time user of ARCserve and so know it pretty good.
