Frozen Tapes - Lots of them
Netbackup 188.8.131.52, Windows 2008R2 with two Windows 2008r2 media server, two Dell ML6000 libraries with 6 drives each.
Im seeing something odd with media freezing.
I loaded up both of our Dell tape libraries with enough media to run through the entire weekend, into Monday. I do this every Friday afternoon. As of typing this (the very next morning), I started seeing some error 96's showing up. I know what that means, so I knew it should not be happening. I looked and I see that about 50 tapes total between my two libraries went into "frozen" status. What is especially odd to me is that in Library 1, about 30 tapes all went frozen at exactly 7:52:09. I know there are various reasons why tapes can go into a frozen state, but this happened in both libraries, and multiple tapes, so I can discount bad media or drive issues, especially since they all went frozen at the same second. Have any of you seen this behavior before?
