We are having some problems with our Veritas 9.1 Backup Exec. Currently we have two scans that run everynight.
- Exchange server backup starts at 7:00pm (approx. 30 mins)
- Fileserver w/ Veritas installed on it starts at 8:00pm (approx. 5.5 hours)
Our exchange backup 99% of the time completes successfully. However, our Fileserver backup will eject the media, and we recieve alert boxes with the following messeges:
"Please insert overwritable media into the drive. Overwritable media includes scratch, blank, and recylable media. Please note that depending on the current Media Overwrite Protection setting, imported and allocated media may be overwritable as well. Consult the online help for more information on overwritable media. Options available:
Yes to acknowledge
No to cancel the backup
close to close alert box
When the media tape is placed back into the ultrium tape backup device and we click "Yes" we recieve:
Media "name of tape" is overwrite protected. The media in drive "Ultrium Tape drive" is currently allocated and is not available for overwrite process. Then if you close it out or click ok the first messege recieved will pop up agian.
under tools -> options -> media management -> Overwrite Protection is set to None.
Inside both Job Setup Properties -> Device and Media -> When the Job Begis -> Append to media, overwrite if no appendable media is available.
All of the settings tell the device to overwrite, there is no protection on the overwrite and the jobs have enough time between them so that the first one can complete and the second job can start.
Any help would be greatly apprciated!!
