I can't run any backups as the tape device is always in use. I am using a Overland Storage Library. I have gone into the webadmin of the Overland and removed the tape from the drive. Right now it is currently empty but BackupExec still reports it as "device in use". This is not a new setup. It has been running since 09/2007. No updates have been done to the server recently. Any suggestions? I am able to move tapes around in the library, in and out of the tape drive, i can run cleaning tape from the device's webadmin page. I really think it is an issue with BackupExec but I can't figure it out. I have stopped the BackupExec and SQL services many times with no luck. I have rebooted both the server and the Overland many times as well. Please help as this is our only backup device for our organization. thanks.
