Backup Job Queued. BE 2010

Created: 25 Oct 2012 | 1 comment

Hello - I've recently started a new job where the previous admin has Backup Exec 2010 setup on a Windows SBS server. I have zero experience with this software (and windows in general) so please forgive me.

The job is scheduled to run daily incremental backups.

We have a cru dataport drive, (always mapped to the same drive letter) with remoevable hard drives for our backup. We rotate between 3 drives on a weekely basis.

The backup process has not run for 2 weeks. The job starts, but the status immediately goes to Queued. In the alerts tab, it gives me a Message to "insert overwritable media into the backup-to-disk device"

I have tried a number of things like restarting services, changing drives, run inventory and I still cannot figure out how to get the job to run.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Check the technote below for some more information. Probably the OPP (Overwrite Protection Period) has not yet passed, so BE will not overwrite the backup2disk folder. You can manual erase the disk before the backup job will start, or configure a shorter OPP.
