Backup Exec tape ejecting during/before backup runs
Hopefully someone can help. I am running BE 2010R2 on a W2003 server. I have 2 single Ultrium 3 drives and 8 backup jobs split between the 2 drives.
Recently I hve noticed that after 1 or 2 backups complete the next job cant connect to a tape and says either:
Media is write protected or the tape has been ejected.
I dont have the eject option ticked on any job and as far as I can see there is no overwrite protect timelimit in place.
All media is in the "daily" media pool.
I have an auto inventory and erase job for both drives and the tapes are changed daily.
I have noticed though that this only happens on a weekend where I have 1 weekly backup running from Friday night into Saturday morning. This can take upto 18 hours on some weekends, where as everything else is a 2 hour max job.
But the ejects dont just happen on this one weekly job. It can be any job thereafter.
Any extra info needed or any suggestions would be great.
