BE 12.5 - Backups suddenly started asking for overwrightable media
I'm not very experienced with Backup Exec and our backups have suddenly started failing. We are using Backup Exec 12.5 on Windows 2008 Server with HP Ultrium 2
We do a weekly backup of the whole server to a set of Week tapes for the month(5 tapes in total) which has been working fine. The backup job is set to overwright the tape each week. However this week it just prompted to insert overwrightable media after running the backup for 3hrs, a full successful backup usually takes 6hrs+.
The backup size hasn't changed dramatically so I don't think its a problem fitting the data on the tape as it usually say something along the lines of media full. Its currently at 226GB, but has successful backups as large as 245GB in the past.
I've even tried to erase a tape and re-do the backup and it still fails.
Log Information - This log was taken from a job that requested overwrightable media after 3hrs and I cancelled the job
