Duplicate Image from disk

master/media server NBU 7.5.0.6  2008r2

I need to duplicate some images from disk to tape. I have attached screen shots of the process I went through. But when I look at the tape in admin console the media shows no images on tape. I have also attached the details page of one of the jobs. Are the settings in the duplication variables setup correct? Thanks for any help.

did you see that job got failed with EC 50

client process aborted(50)

when job got failed it will not update the info into the catalog, that is the reason you are not seeing that in media attributes.

make a successfull duplication job, then try to verify.

Unfortunately the duplication job is seen as a failure:

client process aborted(50) 

This means that NBU has discarded all image info for copy 2.

Did you perhaps close the console session where you started the duplication?

The console session times out. I will try it again and keep the session open. One question though. Can I run multiple disk to tape duplication jobs. I have 2 drives and assume that 2 jobs will start and 2 will get queued up?

As per above TN, you may want to script it using bpduplicate.
