Symantec Backup Exec 10D tape ejects before Verification Process

The job status changes to "Loading Media" and ejects the tape after it has completed backing up date BUT before it starts the verification.  The job has been fine for more than a year and all the sudden started ejecting before verification.  

The job type changes to : "Verify"
Job Status "Loading Media"
Byte count: "0"

 There is nothing I can think of that I've done that could have caused this... although there may have been something but I cannot think of anything.

Thats what I run.  I have a backup to an overland VTL, then copies it to LTO3 tape.

The backup job is not bigger than the Tape size?
Do you have the eject media under device and Media selected?

The tape is 200/400 and the backup job is ~250.  I've always had software\hardware compression selected and have backup a good bit more than 250 with no problems.

I've also always had the eject option set after the job, yes.

So B.E. is DEFINITELY not requesting the insertion of another tape?

Well, I would pause that job and create another one just like it.  Test run that one and see if has problems.

TapeDude:  I thought the same thing.  I've seen this @ another client site where it would request additional media if the previous tape was full.  In this case I would see the status: running\(or whatever) and the byte count would at least show whatever filled the previous tape.

JRaster:  I could try this but and let you know

I'm sorry that I have not tried this yet.  I'm currently implementing the backup to disk solution first that then will try this before I get off the tape.

I'm going to have to go with that answer and close this question.  Backing up to tape first is old school when you have 15+ servers.  Thanks!
