Losing catalog from tape when appending?

Created: 06 Feb 2005 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 20 comments

Hi, I recently came accross something wierd when servicing a customer.

They run a 2003 server with Backup Exec 9.1 having all latest updates/patches as of writing. (I am fairly certain of this as I installed most of the updates myself.)

The streamer is a Sony SDX-460V with the latest BE driver from Veritas.

The first thing I noticed was that in media types, "*" is all that shows up with read and write set to NO. To start a blank tape I had to manually set it to YES on read and write and then get it to label the tape. After this was done, it happily accepts the tape again. (Has to be done for all new tapes.) It does not retain the read/write setting at all.


But, the issue:
First I ran one job: backup with modified time, set to overwrite tape using family name "Weekly 1a".
Then I ran second job: backup with modified time, set to append only, family name in case of overwrite "Weekly 1b".
(This name should not be used as it is append only.)

Both jobs end with success and do not backup the same files, but does work on same HD. The mediaset used allows infinite append and is overwrite protected for 1 week.

If I then enter restore menu I can see the "Weekly 1b" but not the "Weekly 1". Nor can not find any of the files from the first job in any view.

It seems to be overwriting a non-overwriteable tape, or simply loosing the catalog... I reduced the ammount of work in the jobs to a small set of files so I could run the jobs quickly to verity this behaviour and it happens every time, without fail.

I set up a backup to disk folder accross the network and tried the same jobs but with full set of files (as I needed a backup of these files now). This time they work, but I expect this may be due to them starting new files. (I set the max file size to 1 GB wich is smaller than any of the jobs alone.)

To repeat:
The restore menu indicates "Weekly 1a(Weekly 1)" to contain my overwrite-type backup-job after first job is run.
After second job is run, it indicates "Weekly 1b(Weekly 1)" instead and the first set is nowhere to be found.
A catalog job on the tape tells me there is NO catalogs to be found on the tape, yet the verify part of the backup jobs completed without a failure.

Version info: v9.1 rev 4691.

I hope this can be resolved as I need to set up a rotation scheme for this customer and without the data being retained they would have a serious problem...

Be4691RHF42_273793.exe Hotfix 42 has already been tried. It did not change anything.

I wish it had.

To isolate the issue, create a new media set and jobs. Perform the steps again and verify the result.


Hope this helps.

Ok.
I made a new media set and two new backup jobs.
First job is set to overwrite.
Second job is set to never overwrite.
Both jobs are set to verify after backup completes.
They write to same device, and same media set.

The family name of the two jobs are different so I can see wich one "owns" the tape later...

I erased a tape and gave it a new label for this test.

The two jobs backed up a different subdirectory under a common directory so that I could see if I could access both subdirectorys after completion of last job.

The jobs are small so I would waste a minimum of time.
(approx 100 MB each)

First job went well with no errors and verify OK.
The restore dialog now clearly shows my new tape under all media as "testfamily 1(test-tape)" wich is correct since I gave the tape the name "test-tape" and I set the family name on the first job to "testfamily 1".

Second job went well too. No errors and verify OK.
The restore dialog now shows "testfamily 2(test-tape)" wich indicates to me that either, it has written over the contents of the tape, or it has lost the first catalog.
The second job wich was set to never overwrite (die first!) did something it shouldn't have.

I then tried to catalog the tape to see what was on it...
This resulted in a successful job in the job log, but the details of the job states "No backup sets found."

Inventory of the tape lists it as "test-tape" so the label was ok.

(I am using a AIT-1 turbo drive (IDE) with original turbo tapes...)

On a side-note:
If I enable prescan to be used when doing the backups, the job-service tends to die randomly.

My driver is identified as:
SDX-460V
AIT 64K (64K,10,0,E)
SONY SDX-460V <1000:0000:0000:0001:0000> (wich must be wrong!)

Maby I should reinstall entire exec?

Awfull quiet here now?
Has everyone moved on to other issues?

I really need to resolve this issue... Backups need to be automated and reliable, or else they are of little value :(

No ideas from Veritas either?
Come on guys (and gals) I know you can find the bug :)

kreature's picture

I tried HF 42 earlier with no effect.
However, I am unsure I have ran a slow catalog?

Is it the same as right clicking a station and selecting catalog?

kreature's picture

I managed to get a new error when testing today...

First I ran job 1 wich overwrites a tape.
Then I ran job 2 wich is supposed to append.

Both jobs ran successfully.

When checking the restore menu I still only have access to the files from Job 2.

I then reran job 2 for another append operation.
This job failed!!!

The media was appendable before job was run.
Completed status: Failed
Final error: 0xa000810d - Physical Volume Library Media not found.
Final error category: Backup Media Errors

Error listing also says:
Media mount failed.
Physical Volume Library Media not found.

The media is now registered as not appendable!

Consecutive jobs now fail with this output:
No appendable media could be mounted.
Error - Mount failed.
Physical Volume Library Media not found.


Does this help pinpoint the problem ?

anoop nair 2's picture

Hi,

The "Physical Volume Library Media not found" issue could occur if in the backup job properties, "Append to media, terminate job if no appendable media is available" is specified and there is no space to append. Hence, the backup job is getting terminated.
Refer to the following technote for more information:
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/192180.htm

kreature's picture

Sure. Makes 100% sence.
Problem is the tape is a 40 GB native tape and I only used 64 MB... There shouldbe plenty of room to append.

I tried enabling on tape catalogs and I still can't catalog a tape. There were never any issues with the old streamer... A DLT 2000 one.

Maby this is a driver issue, not a catalog issue?

kreature's picture

I reinstalled Backup Exec last night.

What I did so far:
- Clean 9.1 install
- Latest drivers installed
- Ran tests from Sony on the tape device. All OK.
- Ran two tests jobs. First overwrite, second append.
Append one failed with:
Completed status: Failed
Final error: 0xa000810d - Physical Volume Library Media not found.
Final error category: Backup Media Errors

Windows built in backup software has NO problems backing up and restoring from the device/tape. This has to be a BE issue.

I have now installed the SP1 update and will start testing as soon as I get a chance.

kreature's picture

I ran some more tests now.

Ran the first job again (wich overwrites.)

Backup: OK
Verify: OK

Restore of dataset used in test: FAILED

Final error: 0xa00084cf - Unknown error.
Final error category: Job Errors

I tried both with Veritas drivers and with the WHQL certified Sony drivers. Same thing. Backup & verify works. Restore or append doesn't.

I am now running only 9.1 here with SP1. No other hotfixes yet.

kreature's picture

I installed Ultrabac 45 day trial to see if it was the driver/tapedrive now that I am running the WHQL drivers.
(I didn't let Ultrabac use it's drivers.)

It worked flawlessly with Ultrabac!

I can back up, with HW compression, and I can append as many times as I want. I can also restore the data and I can retrieve the on-tape catalogs. It also recognizes new tapes as unknown and can format/label em for Ultrabac. Backup Exec can only label a new tape if I go into the settings menu of the tapedrive first and change the "*" tape from "no / no" to "yes / yes" to allow it read and write capability of the tape. There is no other tape choices in the list for the device.

Veritas, what info do you need to figure out this bug? Can I enable some debug log or trace somwhere to help?
My customer has already bought Veritas Backup Exec so I don't think I can convince them to buy Ultrabac.
Right now, the price is the only thing keeping them from changing.

kreature's picture

OK, this is wierd...
I rebooted server after making sure the WHQL drivers were really installed and retried Backup Exec.

Now it worked.

First attempt the second job, the append, hung. But it was possible to cancel it and I reran both jobs. This time no problem. I was also able to restore data from both the main job, and the append.

Will set up a full dataset backup now and some differential backups. Then I can see how it runs.

Seems like there is still an issue with the system not accepting blank media without setting the read/write options manually on the drive before each attempt though.
This must be Backup Exec not recognizing the media type. (AIT-1 Turbo)

Hello,

We need to know if the issue regarding catalog from tapes while appending has been resolved. In case it persists, you can write back to the forum.

NOTE : If we do not receive your intimation within two business days, this post would be "assumed answered" and archived.

Regards.

kreature's picture

Thankyou for reminding me.

After uninstalling everything and reinstalling only 9.1 and using Sonys driver instead of the Veritas one it is working.

The backups now run and as long as I do not enable prescan it does not crash. The appended tapes can now be read at later time too.

It still appears that BE doesn't recognize the tapedrive correctly as it only lists one tape type for the drive: "*" with read/write set to NO. To label a new tape I have to set R/W to Yes/Yes before each label operation. When the tapes are labeled they are accepted by BE and can be handled as normal.

I have noticed that differential backups ran on every weekday are not cponsistent on data size backed up. Main job with full backup was 37 GB. First diff was 1.5 GB, next 1.6, 1.8, 2.1 and then suddently next day was 21 GB !
I do not know what happened, but the same thing happened last week. Normal diff size progress, then suddently a very large diff.

I will scan the system for viruses and look for other processes "branding" files in case this is the cause. (I am running based on modified time due to a web-backup system running in paralell for online retrieval. This works on the Archive flag, but does not change file dates.)
