Problems with BE 10 d and the Friday- and MonthTapes
I´ve got BE 10 d SP4 on a Windows Server 2003 R2 Server, a LTO-2 Streamer, one Backup Job and a Backup Volume about 180 GB.
I do a Grandfather-Father-Son Backup, that means, I have 1 Tape for Mo-Thu (one for each day), I have 4 Friday Tapes and one Tape for each Month, and one Tape for the year. I didn`t change the Backup Job for a long time. Since a few time, I have the problem, that the backup job interrupts only with friday and month tapes. He would like to have an additional tape to finish the job. The tape has space for 200 GB and he ask me for an additional tape at sometimes 70 GB, sometimes 160 GB, sometimes 130 GB.
I tried a full erasure on the tape first, so that no data is on it befor the backup job starts. I bought new tapes. Nothing solved my problem. He always ask me for the additional tape except last friday. On this day the backup was succesfully finished (also from Mo-Thu every week).
I deaktivated the hardware and software compression. I checked the tape drive with the HP Library and Tape Tools - without errors except a recommended firmware Update. I did the firmware Update but the job still interrupted last friday.
Has anyone an Idea?
Thanks in advance
