all tapes in autoloader showing as Cleaning Media
Posted on 2008-06-17
i'm running backupexec 9.1 with a pair of sony autoloaders. this setup has been running fine for years. suddenly any tape i put in a drive is show as Cleaning Media under Devices/Roboti Libraries/Slots/Media Set. When I do an "import" the tape will appear as the appropriate Media Set, but then reverts back to Cleaning Media when the application attempts to use the tape. I'm leaning towards scsi hardware, but any solution I come up with is hard to explain since both sony autoloaders are showing the same behaviour. Your thoughts are apprecaited.
