If a GRT enabled full backup is run to tape and a GRT differential or incremental backup is run to disk, the differential or incremental backup may fail with a job error.
Final error: 0xe000fe21 - An invalid path or file name was specified.
Final error category: Job Errors
FULL backup of the SharePoint Farm is done to tape. Differential or incremental backup to a disk target fails. If the differential or incremental runs to tape, it completes successfully.
The data changes that make up a Sharepoint incremental or differential backup are combined with the full backup to create a composite view of the data. When the full and incremental/differential backups are targeted to different storage device types this combination step is not working properly.
