BE2012 - different media handling to BE2010 ?
Compared to BE2010 I've seen 2 differences in mediahandling of BE2012 - I just wanted to check if that's "normal" or a fault in my installation:
1. Deletion of old media sets:
In the media set its defined how long media sets are "writeprotected" bevor they could be overwritten.
In BE2010 the handling of "overwritable backupsets" was, that they are left on the device (USB oder B2D) till the space is really nedded - THEN they are deleted. The advantage was, that the available space was completely used and you could access even older backupsets.
In BE2012 the "deletable backupsets" are deleted as soon as they reach that point in time - no access to older backups is possible.
2. Backupsets on disconnected are deleted only in the database, not on the device
When USB or other removable diskbased devices are used, it happens very often in our environment, that backupsets that are no longer protected are deleted in the BE database, but not on the media, as the media (e.g. USB-disc) is not attached to the BE media server during that time.
When you try to reuse the disc, it's full, but when you check which backupsets are located on the device (in BE), none are listed.
The only solution so far is to check the bedata-folder manualy and delete the old sets that are still on the disc but not longer in the database.
We didn't have that problem in BE2010.
Have you experienced similar behaviour ?
