Append Date Not Applying
Small environment, single tape unit running a full backup of servers Fri and differential Sun-Thur. Everything should fit on 1 tape (LTO 4 800/ 1600). Have 5 tapes that we rotate. Every Fri we put the weekly tape in and fast erase it.
The overwrite protect is set to 4 weeks and the append is set to infinite. If I check the append until date it never says infinite, it is always set to the Thur of the week. the result is our final differential backup fails with no available media. We have tried running incremental instead of differential but get the same error.
Just wondering if it's the erasing of the tape that is doing this, i.e. not setting the correct appendable until date? Even though the initial full backup backs up fine on the Fri and the overwrite protect date is correct i.e. 4 weeks from the initial backup.
Appreciate any help, this is production environment. Server 2008 R2. BUPEXEC 2012 (14.0 Rev 1798)
