Backup Exec 2012 End Marker Unreadable VIRTUAL Tapes
Posted on 2012-10-03
Hello, I am running BE 2012(which is the biggest piece of crap) on a Windows 2003 Standard server. This media server is connected via iSCSI to a REO 4500. I am getting "end marker unreadable" on all my VIRTUAL tapes. I opened a support ticket with Symantec, they told me to long erase my tapes and that would resolve the issue. This of course did not work. Symantec can't seem to wrap their heads around a virtual tape. I keep telling them it isn't a physical tape, but they are lost. Now Symantec is pointing the finger and the VTL manufactuer, Overland Storage. The VTL library worked perfectly with version 12, so I doubt it is the VTL.
Anyone out there who can lend a hand?
