BE 2012 restore from multiple tape duplicates - which tape is used?
I do the backup of our file server the following way. At first all data is backed up to disk. Then the data is duplicated to tape twice. So I have two identical tape media. One of these is stored locally at our location and one is stored externally for security.
Now I want to restore some older data in Backup Exec 2012. The data on the disk is not existing anymore but I have those two tape media sets. In BE 2010 I created a restore job and saw both sets in the resource view and could select with one to use for restore. Now in BE 2012 I only see the backuped data ones and BE tries to determine wich media should be used.
The problem is that BE always wants me to insert the external media not the internal one I have here. If I go to the media view I can see the desired data is on the tape but there is no way to create a restore job from there.
One more interesting thig is if I search for the file while creating a restore job. The file is found twice with the same backup date (existing on two media!?) but whatever I select it wants me to insert the external tape.
What can I do now? My expectation was that BE knows that the file is stored on different media and tells me "Insert this or insert that.." and accepts both media as long as the data fits.
