Disk to Tape Jobs Failing
We have a backup server with a single slot tape device. We recently installed BackupExec 2010 R3 on the server. I have recreated all of my backups as duplicate backups. All of the Disk to Disk jobs run successfully. My problem is the Disk to Tape jobs. I read in another post that if you want to write multiple jobs to one tae, the first job needs to be set to overwrite, the other jobs are set to append to media, terminate job if no appendable media is available.
The first job runs successfully overwriting the media. All of the other jobs fail with the following message: No appendable media could be mounted. V-79-57344-33037 - Error - Mount Failed. Physical Volume Library Media Mount Failed.
I have tried setting the option to Append to media, overwrite if no appendable media is available. Which runs successfully, but it overwrites the previous backup. So all jobs could run successfully, if I only wanted to keep the last job.
Does someone have an idea of what I might be doing wrong? When the first overwrite job finishes, overwrite protection on the tape states it is overwritable and appendable until is set to Inifinite.
Thank you in advance for any help that can be provided.
