BE 2012: Job seems to finish, tape ejects, but no complete?
I just did my first test backup with BE 2012. The server is a 2008 R2 physical machine with just about nothing on it yet. Hyper-V role insetalled but no VMs.
I ran a test backup to an internal ultrium tape drive. The job creation process was pretty good, easier IMO than BE 2010.
The backup took about an hour to run, I came back to check on it, and the tape had been ejected (during job creation I had specified to Eject tape). Yet the Job Activity screen showed it was still Active, but no other prompt for say, a 2nd tape or anything. The timer was still incrementing, but no data processing was happening.
I took out the tape, put it back in, and within about 5 seconds the job went to Completed status. I did not sound as though additional data was written to the tape.
So this obviously isn't ideal if a person is not present to re-insert a tape, has anybody seen this? I'm going to re-run the job and see if it does it again.
Edited: Just wanted to add that as I re-inserted the tape and the job status went to Completed, it did not eject the tape as I expect it should have at the official completion of the job.
