Catalog old media - loading media/queued
I've recently replaced my Backup Exec Server and my LTO4 autloader for an LTO5 autoloader.
I'm trying to catalog some old tapes to look for some files which a user is looking for.
I've put the old media in to the LTO5 autoloader, run an inventory job - it detects the media (but doesn't read the label) and sticks it in the retired media media set.
When I then try and catalog the tapes (the backup job would have spanned three tapes) it just sits for literally hours (15+) and alternates between "Queued" and "Loading Media" and the tape keeps loading and unloading from the drive.
What am I doing wrong?
I've still got the old LTO4 autoloader... so my next step is to try that... but I'd really rather not as it'll involve mucking around with SCSI cards.
