Hello Experts,

I have a windows 2k3 server running Veritas Back up Exec 9.1, ok I know it's a very old version, but I'm new at company and I already proposed to change it...

But while it doesn't happen I have to live with this.

Here we have a job and it was running well until yesterday, when the server logged this error message:
Job started     : Friday, August 05, 2011 8:53:36 AMJob ended       : Friday, August 05, 2011 9:03:00 AMFinal error: 0xa0008703 - Job failed running its test run. See logfile for details.
Final error category: Job ErrorsCompleted status: Failed

I think it's a media error because other log shows me this information:

Media CheckOnline media check   : Insufficient online or nearline media is available to start job.Overwrite media check: There is no media online or nearline that can be overwritten or the job has been marked append/terminate.Media check status   : Failed

I checked another media and I got the same error message.
I don't know why but most of my medias have compression ratio of 2.61:1 and this media has just 1:1, is there a way to increase this value?

Why just this media has a different compression ratio?

Media Type 4MM
Device: PV-100T-DAT72

I appreciate any help.
Regards,
Juliano
