Backup Exec 2012 R3 Device Tasks Don't Work
Backup Exec 2012 R3 Rev 5204
Dell PV-124T Autoloader LTO5
I am trying to perform device tasks (scan, catalog, unlock, initialize) on my tape drive and the job status just stays in a paused state. The tape drive under the media is enabled and I do not have pending errors or alerts. What's odd is that I can still run backup and recovery jobs without a problem.
So everytime I swap tapes, the tape drive is locked because I cannot unlock through Backup Exec. Then I have to manually eject the magazine but of course Backup Exec won't scan the new tapes so I have to power cycle the tape drive.
Any ideas what the problem can be?
