Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 not using available tape
Posted on 2011-03-21
Every Monday I insert 2 tapes into the library. I format these tapes using the 'Quick Erase' function in Backup Exec and I assign the media to the appropriate media set "Daily".
Daily Media Set Properties - OPP: 27 Days, AP: 6 Days
During the week the backup performs fine until the first media becomes full (this is usually in the middle of a job). Then for some reason it doesn't continue to use the available tape and displays the message "Please insert overwritable media into the robotic library using the import command."
Now if I cancel the job manually and start it again then it will use the available tape.
I am completely out of ideas! I've even created new media sets and I still get the same issue. Help!
