NetBackup 126.96.36.199 partial full media allocation issue
I have just installed NetBackup 188.8.131.52 and ran a policy more than once to test HP MSL4048 tape library. I have noticed that NetBackup allocates a new empty tape every time a new job kicks off ending up with lots of partial full media in the pool and depleting my scratch pool. From my understanding It should allocate the same tape until it gets full. To overcome this I had to set partially full media to 1. Does anyone have any idea what´s really going on with this new version.
