Ready; no media servers are available - BE 2010 R3 Server 2008 SP2 (x64)
I’m having a problem with Backup Exec and not backing up any jobs at all the moment – the job status states on all jobs (disks and tape) ‘Ready; no media servers are available’. I am running BE 2010 R3 with all latest patches and updates on a Server 2008 SP2 (x64) box.
This is both Disk backups and tape backups – I have done the following: -
· Ensured all updates are up to date via LiveUpdate
· Restarted all BE services
· Paused ALL devices, disable and re-enable
· Uninstalled the drivers for the tape drive and disk, restarted the server (a couple of times), re-installed the drivers again
Done the above to no avail and still comes up with that message (Ready; no media server are available)
On the devices tab, I noticed that the media server states ‘Discovering Devices’. After I restart the services or server, all the devices are offline and I have to enable them manually but still states this message ‘Discovering Devices’. When I attempt to perform a job, then it comes up with that message in the job status and hangs there and no way I know of getting rid of it.
At the moment none of my backups jobs are performing. Any other things I can try?
