Media Labels do not "save" BE 2010 R3
We just upgraded our old LTO-5 tape drive and library to a LTO-6 Dual tape drive/library (with the correct licenses added)
Everything works fine with backups and so forth - but I'm getting frustrated with labeling, via Backup Exec.
For the first time - we are using barcodes - the drive reads these just fine.
Within BE, I go to the Media Tab and one at a time, select a tape in a pre defined "day of the week" slot (example IBM [0001..003])
I double click on the tape and rename each of the two tapes Monday 1-A and B respectively. I change both the Media label and the Media description. I do the same for the other days.
neither the server or the Autoloader are rebooted or power cycled
The next day when I come in - either some or all of the various days have been either reset to nothing but the barcode label number.
I learned that you can't Right Click (from the devices screen) and change the Media Label there, due to the barcode. but shouldn't the Media Description "Save"?
This is how we keep track of what tape goes where in our rotation.
