We have an issue on a Windows 2003 SP2 server with Symantec BackupExec 11d (with the latest hotfixes installed), with an Sony AIT4 StorStation Library where we get a cleaning tape error on a couple of the backup jobs - but the jobs themselves complete with no issue - except that the error "cleaning media was mounted" is logged - except these slots are not marked as cleaning slots - and the tapes are either brand new or a long erase has been run previously.
We have a single cleaning tape in slot 8 - and when the drive requests a cleaning request - it uses the tape because it is marked as a cleaning slot.
From the Veritas/Symantec knowledgebase - we know that this is a bug that will be fixed in the next major release - but for the time being know that these commands fix the issue.
osql -E -S sgs-sr-backup\bkupexec -d bedb
delete from jobhistorydetail where finalerrordescription like '%library%'
We are looking to script this to run automatically at regular intervals - but the first command has to be run - then the lines after piped into the osql prompt.
Does anyone have an idea how to do this? All suggestions gratefully received.
