I have a Dell 124t Tape Library and Backup Exec 2010 on a MS Server 2008 x64 Machine.
The Tape Library is connected via SAS Cable.
I feel im experiencing a weird issue that if i change the tapes around in the left magazine of the TL, i do not see BE reflect these changes without running a commend in BE.
I have spoken to a few people with BE2010 and other brand TL's and they report that changing the media in a magazine should reflect in BE automatically without having to run a job in order to see the changes.
Could this be a limitation of the compatability between the two?
My current solution is to run a command pre-job that initiates an inventory before the backup job commences, though im having issues with that too. The issue with this is that im I have the batch run as a Pre-command, though it seems to be running after the backup job completes.
There are 2 options i can tick within this section once i enter a path for the pre-command.
The first is is "Allow pre- and post-commands to be successful only if completed with a return code of zero" and the second is "Run job only if pre-command is successful".
I know that ticking these can cause the backup not to run at all with a return of an incomplete command.
Any suggestions, ideas would be muchly appreciated.
