I Feel sorry about the PMs of BE2012
I'm an Engineer which uses BE from the vesions of BE 8.5 i loved this product category. i got the certification of BE specialist 10d too.
Recently i've upgraded BE2012 from 12.5d & i started to hate this product & started to feel sorry for the development team as i really see a very lack of knowledge of the practical usage of this product category.
job monitoring is a time consuming process (If you have in mind how a persion with 20 tape drives monitor the jobs by accessing each drive related to each job u never do this design).
job history is same.
SQL servers can not be backup as the selection list can not be created.
when check the catelog hard to find the place of the job name where it dificult to verify whether the data has been written to the desired tape.
also the job history details can not be copied & paste where it's difficult to manage manual reports. etc
Tape inventory & eject is not happening well.
data restoring is a nightmare as finding the desired data is hard.
Please do something.
