Symantec Backup Exec wont use Scratch Media
Posted on 2012-04-11
I have Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 with 3 Backup to Disk folders 1.5TB each in a Drive Pool.
Low Disk Space Threshold is not enabled. Recently I filled all drives in the poop to within kb of free space on each.
With the overwrite protection as I have it jobs could not continue as no new media could be created and existing media could not be re-used.
I moved all media into the scratch media set. Shouldn't this allow my jobs to continue, re-using existing media?
In options I have "Overwrite recyclable media before scratch media" as recommended for backup to disk devices.
All backup to disk folders are sporting the "low disk space" warning.
