How to get a tape to be overwriteable and appendable

I am noticing that when I rotate my tapes out for the "Full" backup weekly,  I erase the tapes prior to the backups.  I put the tapes in the correct media group and they are overwriteable BUT it is also "Not applendable".  The tapes have to be appendable to get all the backup sets on these tapes.

What am I doing wrong?  I am not getting a good backup to tape.

Dont place the tapes in a media set.. Associate them with scratch media and allow backup exec to pull and associate the tape. The App associated with the media set will be applied tape when it is written to. 

Have you set an append period for the media set?

I hope this posting was helpful

If the status of the Tape is Overwritable, it cannot be appended to. The first operation allowed on a scratch/overwritable Tape is overwite. Then next operation can be append.

Thank you both.  As always, this is one of the best community forums around. Maybe one day I too can contribute to this.

Have a great week.
