Veritas Backup Issues with jobs not completing.  We have daily full backups that run and overwrite each tape for every day of the week.  I called symantec suppport and they webexed in and changed the media set to append period to 0.  I think it was at the default.  Would this cause any issues?  Now my backup only ran about half of the 50 gigs.
Thanks

What errors are you getting in the job logs?  Can you post those?  Are you getting any Application errors in  the Event Viewer?
Yep, job log will tell you what went wrong and why.

I guess I am more or less wondering what append indefinently means under media set.  We are overwriting so this should not even be setup correct?

Thanks,
You should erase the data on the tapes in the day b4 the backup which occurs in the night. If this does not work try using a brand new tape, make be defective tape.
