automatically run inventory and erase on foreign media in backup exec version 12

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
Despite all media sets and overwrite settings set to none I cant automatically insert and foreign tape i.e one form arcserve backup and get backup exec to backup up over the top it just spits it out and ask for removable scratch media etc. The only way I have got it to work is to manualyy run an invintory on the drive then an d quick erase then move in to a media set then it will work. This is a nightmare as Im on site and allot of the tapes are off site as so I want to make sure that they will work automatically when the cusotmer brings them back. Can anyone help as Ive looked eveywhere. I have made a batch file in the pre post commands that runs an inentory before it backups up but the jkob still fails as it needs to be erased. Please can anyone help.!!!
