Media intervention alert gone after R3 install
After upgrading to BE 2010 R3 (from R2), the media intervention alert no longer pops up when I run an import on my library. I found one tech note that indicates the media intervention alert will not work for the Dell 124T autoloader, but this is absolutely not true, as I am certain that I have seen this three times a week for many months, as have the other backup admins before me. As I write this, I remember now too that I upgraded my tape library drivers to Symc's latest driver set, as well. Though, I'm almost a hundred percent certain this problem cropped up right after patching and upgrading to R3.
The media intervention alert does show up in the Application event logs. It just doesn't pop up on screen.
My old process went like thus: Highlight, right-click, import, click ok, swap tapes, come back and click ok to media intervention alert, put the media into scratch.
My new process: Highlight, r-c, imp, click ok, swap tapes, wait 20 minutes, get distracted with another issue or ten, forget to put the media into the scratch pool.
I tried resetting the alerts, and that did not fix it. Does anyone know if I can tweak this thing in the right way to get to give me alerts again?
