BE12.5 says I don't have enough free space on B2D
Well, I got this customer who has BE 12.5 and his HP autoloader died a few months ago.
We sold them a 10TB NAS so they could backup using B2D in the meantime (they were going to buy a new autoloader anyways). The NAS is a Lacie 5Big Network 2 with five disk in RAID 5 using two bonded giga ethernet pipes in load balancing.
Everything was fine until last week, when it was needed to rotate / delete old media because of low disk space (say, 100GB free). I deleted the first two weeks (freeing about 2TB of disk space) but then BE said I had no space available on the NAS when I ran a job. Moreover, all jobs halted or were canceled with a "Media Error" and set the B2D folders to offline. Although I put them online, jobs will faill saying "no free space available".
Interestingly enough, any of the B2D folders has the "low space threshold" option enabled, so that would not be supposed to happen.
I had to restart services to be able to start the jobs and backup normally.
Thanks for your insights!
