Windows Server 2003 SBS, Backup Exec 12 - Not Ejecting Tapes

Posted on 2009-12-22
Last Modified: 2013-12-01
We have a 2003SBS box running BE 12, and for some reason sometimes it ejects the tape and sometimes it doesnt.

The job is set to eject the tape, and completes successfully, but doesn't always eject the tape...

    Accepted Solution

    What kind of tape drive is it? We had a similar problem with Exabyte drives, but haven't since we switched to HP's.

    It is a HP drive, I've just upgraded for the firmware on it, so I'm going to let it run over the xmas and New Year period and see how it goes.
