Backup Exec 11d Support - Backup Task Creation
I would like to create a backup Job but hav encountered a few challenges;
I have an iSCSi box I use for user backups and this box has 5TB of storage. It does not seem a lot but is a mission to backup. The option to use tape backup is yet to be deployed but in the interim I am using external HDD for a disk-to-disk backup plan. I have created 2 jobs that cater for server system state backups and another for user end backups to maximise on the process. I also created 2 device pools for removable media with the backup plans in mind and dedicated external storage for both.
The challenge now is that when I I try to backup I get the error 'Please insert overwritable media into the Backup-to-disk device'. When I check the settings on the backup job, I see that the parameter for when the job begins is set to Overwrite media.
Surely as I am using removable media I must be able to overwrite it as there are no permissions set on the media nor is there any management software for the drive to block an overwrite.
