Issue



Only the Monthly Duplicate Backup will fail with either one of the following errors:
e0000602 - A query for media on which the data set being read is continued was unsuccessful. Insure that all media in the family have been inventoried and cataloged.
e0009444 - The requested source duplicate backup sets catalog record could not be found. Perhaps the media containing the source backup sets was previously deleted.
For details refer to the technote in the related documents section of this technote.

Error



e0009444 - The requested source duplicate backup sets catalog record could not be found. Perhaps the media containing the source backup sets was previously deleted.


Solution



Scenario:
A policy with a backup template and two duplicate backup templates is configured as follows:
1) Week 1 - 5 (E.g: Every Friday) = > Full Backup
2) Week 1 - 4 (E.g: Every Monday) = > Duplicate backup of the Full (Weekly Duplicate)
3) Week 5 = > (E.g: Only the last Monday) = > Duplicate backup of the Full (Monthly Duplicate)
* Overwrite protection(opp) and append period(app) settings for the mediasets used by the Full backup :
opp = 1 Week, app = 1 Day
* Overwrite and append period settings for the mediasets used by the Duplicate backup of the full (Weekly Duplicate):
opp=4 weeks, app = 1 day
* Overwrite and append period settings for the mediasets used by the Duplicate backup of the full (Monthly Duplicate):
opp=1year, app= 3 day
* Target device used by the full backup = Backup to Disk
* Target device used by the duplicate backups = Tape
 
Workaround:
This is a policy misconfiguration, if the monthly duplicate backups were meant to duplicate "only" the full backup of the last week in a month.
As per the above policy definition, the monthly duplicate backup will duplicate all the full backupsets created between week1 and week4. Hence it is required that all the full backupsets are available when the monthly duplicate backup runs.
