Old backup sets on tape not being groomed
On a new BE2012 setup (now on SP2 and the first post-SP2 hotfix), we have gotten to the point where we've rotated through the tapes we have and are re-using the first tapes. Expired backups on those tapes are not being groomed and we are running out of space.
Backup jobs are set to "Append to media, overwrite if no appendable media is available." When the job runs out of space, shouldn't it start overwriting expired backup sets? I think it always has, on other systems.
As I understand it, the new DLM applies only to disks.
Why is BE not overwriting the expired backups?
