BE 2012 and diskpools
I've to say that I am new to BE 2012, but I have a lot of experience from other backup products. I've been working on this issue for a client for a while.
A backup job (lets call it job1) is set to use a storage diskpool for backup. This diskpool contains 4 disks in total (lets call them disk1-4). The backup job1 will only use disk1 and disk2, even though these disks are full and of course the job is failing with insuffient disk space! Disk3 and 4 are online and present but BE does not use them for job1. Disk3 and 4 are added to the pool recently. I can easily create another new job and then BE will use all the disks where diskspace are available.
But for this specific job1 (which is created before adding disk3 and disk4) BE will only use disk1 and 2. Why does this job1 just not use a disk in the diskpool with enough diskspace?
I have opened a support case at Symantec and here are their suggestions so far:
1. Create a new job and set it to use the diskpool - Success
2. Recreate the problematic job1 with a new jobname, use exact same selections, options, etc - Fail, not enough diskspace
3. Disable GRT options in job1 - Fail, not enough diskspace (why does Sym support suggest this? GRT have nothing to with diskpools!)
Anyone seen this issue before? IS it something in the SQL db that links this job1 or objects in job1 to use disk1 and 2 only?
I am stuck here :(
