Anyone Have a similiar problem

Created: 13 Feb 2013 | 2 comments

Hi,

Now i have not used backup Exec in years but now having to use Backup Exec 2010. Now to the problem, I have a tape library and that has two drives I use two tapes for the daily. Now one of the jobs runs for 8 hours the other runs for  1 - 3 hours (both drives are used). Now i have set another job to run two hours after with a time window of 3 hours and it keeps on saying missed window. Now the append status on the dailys is showing 1 day. So my thought is that it should take the tape that thats been used for the 1-3 hour job and append to that tape as the other tape and drive is in use ?

Kind Regards

Scott

Ensure the media set is the same for the other jobs and job is set to append. Ensure the append period is set to infinite allow append. The time windows in the schedule can also be increased so that in case the other job is still keeping the TD occupied it will wait until the TD is free

Did you target your new job to that specific tape drive used by the short job, instead of the tape library?
