Backup Exec 2010 and VLS
I am running backup exec 2010 with 2 HP Tape library and one HP VLS MSL6000 Virtual Library.
I have created one Media Set with 3 weeks retention for the HP VLS. So after some tapes has expired I moved them to the scracthed Media Set.
but the problem is that the job is pending for Tape ! and when I checked I found that those VLS tapes which I moved them to the scrach Media Set are currently in "Offiline Media", So as I got some recommendation which I should create a new vulet then move them to the new vulet to make them online but when I do right clicke on those tapes the option "Move to Vulet" is inactive !!
Please give me some explanation about this problem and solution
If your tapes are not online,
If your tapes are not online, then they cannot be used. BE is sensing that they are not in the slots. You got to somehow get them into the slots and then do an inventory to get them recognised as online. This is more a hardware problem rather than a BE problem.
Creating vaults is not going to solve your problem.
