BE keeps asking for overwriteable media even they are loaded in library
Please excuse if this has been solved but I have spent few hours looking thru forum and haven't find a solution.
I am using BE 2012 with MSL tape library. Backups are perform to tapes. Media configuration is as follows:
- OPP is set to 3 weeks
- AP is set to "infinite - allow append"
- backup jobs are configured with "Append to media, overwrite if no appendable media is available" option
- BE media overwrite protection level is set to: "Partial - protect only allocated media, prompt before overwriting imported media"; media overwrite options is set to: "overwrite scratch media before overwriting recyclable media contained in the target media set".
I would expect that all of above settings allow to use each media untill it is full and then protect it for 3 weeks. Looking at tapes loaded in library, I can see many tapes with given time stamp in OPP column but with much free space. Even though, when most backup jobs start, I get "Please insert overwritable media into the robotic library using the import command." Looking thru particular media, I can see that some of them contain only one backup set and other even few (more expected behaviour).
I would appreciate any comment to above situation.
Thanks in advance!
