Media overwrite errors
I have a client who has been having numerous problems with their backup. There has been a few unrelated errors that we have worked through, including having the LTO drive replaced, as well as replacing some of the tapes themselves.
The last 3 days, the backup has gotten to the point where it is almost complete, then ejects the tape and requests another. We believe the tape is getting filed and wanting another. We have worked with the client identified data we can un-select. I've done a test run this afternoon and it was successful (See screenshot).
The more important question I have is regarding the media itself. Tracking the last 3 failed backups and then looking at the corresponding tapes that were used, they are all set to "Not appendable (Media Full)", where as the last few successful backup's corresponding media is set to "Infinite - Allow Append". I'm a little inexperienced with BE, and I have been doing some online reading, but I am still not clear on how to make ALL the tapes "Infinite - Allow Append"
Can anyone advise. Please ask if you need more info
